Returns true if the path is an absolute path.

join(path, …)

Combines one or more components into one path using the platform’s proper path components.

normalize(path)

Attempts to normalize a path by expanding symbolic links and other ambiguous components.

split(path)

Splits the path into an array of path components (split on the ‘/’ separator), but including the leading ‘/’ root for absolute paths.
