B.52 ResolvePathTask

The ResolvePathTask turns a relative path into an absolute path, with respect to specified directory or the project basedir (if no dir attribute specified).

This task is useful for turning a user-defined relative path into an absolute path in cases where buildfiles will be called in different directories. Without this task, buildfiles lower in the directory tree would mis-interpret the user-defined relative paths.
