isAbsolute property Null safety

bool isAbsolute

Whether this object's path is absolute.

An absolute path is independent of the current working directory (Directory.current). A non-absolute path must be interpreted relative to the current working directory.

On Windows, a path is absolute if it starts with \\ (two backslashes or representing a UNC path) or with a drive letter between a and z (upper or lower case) followed by :\ or :/. This makes, for example, \file.ext a non-absolute path because it depends on the current drive letter.

On non-Windows, a path is absolute if it starts with /.

If the path is not absolute, use absolute to get an entity with an absolute path referencing the same object in the file system, if possible.
