http://stackoverflow.com – I am stuck on a how to robustly find a file path from my Java program. If I am using Linux, I can launch my program from my home folder, and then I can't say find my file at ./myProgram/myFile. Is there a good way to find my file no matter what directory my console is in? (HowTos)
