NAME
       revpath - generate a relative path that can be used to undo a change-directory

SYNOPSIS
       revpath path

DESCRIPTION
       The  revpath  program prints out a relative path that is the ``reverse'' or ``inverse'' of
       path.  Start with two directories top and bottom, with the latter below	the  former,  and
       path  is the location of bottom relative to top.  The output of revpath is the location of
       top relative to bottom.	The resulting path contains a trailing	`/'  character	when  the
       result  is  non-trivial.  If path is equivalent to `.', the resulting output is empty.  If
       path is invalid in some way (e.g., doesn't represent the path to a subdirectory) the  out-
       put is also empty and no error messages are ever generated.

DIAGNOSTICS
       There  are  no diagnostics.  Error conditions are silently ignored, and the exit status is
       always 0.

BUGS
       It isn't possible to reverse arbitrary relative paths.  If any path  element  between  the
       two end points of path is a symbolic link, the results will probably be incorrect.
