> 1. If my program can correctly handle the absolute paths of folders, then theoretically, should it also be able to handle the relative paths of folder directories?
Your project should be able to handle both absolute and relative top-level directory names (I don't believe it's a "theoretical" matter, and am unsure how/why you'd be treating them differently).
> 2. For the part about "Checking of directory names passed on the command-line," should it handle whether the file path format is correct, or identify whether this folder path is valid (i.e., whether it can be opened, using stat())?
I'm not sure what you mean by an incorrect "file path format". Your project should be able to *receive* anything as a *potential* directory name, and determine whether it exists and is accessible.
