passing filepath from another file

P: 1
Hi
I want to avoid hardcoding the filepath in my C program. I want to store the filepath in a variable in a text file. then i have to pass that variable to another file. ex. "$ADE_VIEW_ROOT/a/b/c/a.txt" . Im executing C files in Linux env.
If anyone knows pls help me.

So what exactly do you need help with here? Have you tried the code and got an error?

This sort of scheme works for run-time determination of the file path. It won't work at compile-time (for #include). You didn't say which you were trying to achieve.
