I am trying to get a file path using python. I am using the following script:

import os
filename = os.path.dirname(<filename>)

But this is returning relative path. How to get absolute path?

Instead of using os.path.dirname method which returns the relative path, you os.path.abspath method:

import os
os.path.abspath("<filename>")
