writing to rel file: ./hello.txt
writing to abs file: M:\java\workspace\Stuff\new-work-dir\.\hello.txt

file path 1: M:\java\workspace\Stuff\new-work-dir\.\hello.txt
file path 2: M:\java\workspace\Stuff\new-work-dir\hello.txt
file exists at path 1: true
file exists at path 2: false

actual path of file: M:\java\workspace\Stuff\hello.txt
actual path of file: M:\java\workspace\Stuff\new-work-dir\..\hello.txt



See for yourself...
