The File() and Dir() functions return File and Dir Nodes (as python objects), respectively. Those objects have several user-visible attributes and methods that are often useful:

See also File().

   1 # Get the current build dir's path, relative to top.
   2 Dir('.').path
   3 # Current dir's absolute path
   4 Dir('.').abspath
   5 # Next line is always '.', because it is the top dir's path relative to itself.
   6 Dir('#.').path
   7 File('foo.c').srcnode().path   # source path of the given source file.
   9 # Builders also return File objects:
  10 foo = env.Program('foo.c')
  11 print "foo will be built in %s"%foo.path
