     54@subsection Path Name Evaluation
     55
     56A pathname is a string that consists of no more than @code{PATH_MAX}
     57bytes, including the terminating null character.  A pathname has an optional
     58beginning slash, followed by zero or more filenames separated by slashes. 
     59If the pathname refers to a directory, it may also have one or more trailing
     60slashes.  Multiple successive slahes are considered to be the same as
     61one slash. 
     62
     63POSIX allows a pathname that begins with precisely two successive slashes to be
     64interpreted in an implementation-defined manner.  RTEMS does not currently
     65recognize this as a special condition.  Any number of successive
     66slashes is treated the same as a single slash.   POSIX requires that
     67an implementation treat more than two leading slashes as a single slash.
