Takes a string argument representing a file name, or a list of such strings
and converts it/them to be relative to a different base directory.
When invoking the compiler or scripts, GN will automatically convert sources
and include directories to be relative to the build directory. However, if
you're passing files directly in the "args" array or doing other manual
manipulations where GN doesn't know something is a file name, you will need
to convert paths to be relative to what your tool is expecting.
The common case is to use this to convert paths relative to the current
directory to be relative to the build directory (which will be the current
directory when executing scripts).
If you want to convert a file path to be source-absolute (that is, beginning
with a double slash like "//foo/bar"), you should use the get_path_info()
function. This function won't work because it will always make relative
paths, and it needs to support making paths relative to the source root, so
can't also generate source-absolute paths without more special-cases.
A string or list of strings representing file or directory names These
can be relative paths ("foo/bar.txt"), system absolute paths
("/foo/bar.txt"), or source absolute paths ("//foo/bar.txt").
The directory to convert the paths to be relative to. This can be an
absolute path or a relative path (which will be treated as being relative
to the current BUILD-file's directory).
As a special case, if new_base is the empty string (the default), all
paths will be converted to system-absolute native style paths with system
path separators. This is useful for invoking external programs.
Directory representing the base for relative paths in the input. If this
is not an absolute path, it will be treated as being relative to the
current build file. Use "." (the default) to convert paths from the
current BUILD-file's directory.
Return value
The return value will be the same type as the input value (either a string or
a list of strings). All relative and source-absolute file names will be
converted to be relative to the requested output System-absolute paths will
be unchanged.
Whether an output path will end in a slash will match whether the
corresponding input path ends in a slash. It will return "." or "./"
(depending on whether the input ends in a slash) to avoid returning empty
strings. This means if you want a root path ("//" or "/") not ending in a
slash, you can add a dot ("//.").
