I've never seen the acronym CML before; guessing CoMmand Line?? Where did you see CML? ANONYMOUS wrote:

Could be (full) absolute pathnames, or relative pathnames. It does not matter.

No, you can 'convert' them all to absolute pathnames with the realpath() function - see the project sheet. Searching a computer's whole file-system could take minutes!

No, it could be anywhere in the file-system.
