    string $path,
    array $urlSchemes = [],
    array $streamSchemes = []
): PathInterface;

The parse function tries to detect the type of the given string path in the following order:

  • Unix path

  • Windows path

  • Url/Scheme paths:

    • If both $urlSchemes and $streamSchemes are empty, all scheme prefixed paths are parsed as URLs.

    • If at least one of the lists is non-empty, all unknown schemes throw an exception.

    • Known schemes are parsed according to which list they belong.

  • Relative path of the current OS type.

    • Since there is no way to separate root relative path from Unix path, root relative paths are never returned.

All paths are returned by the parse() constructor in a non strict mode.



    string|PathInterface $basePath,
    string|PathInterface $relativePath
): string;

Resolves relative path from the base path.

If a string is passed: it goes through PathFactory::parse().

If relativePath is an absolute path, it is converted to string and returned.

Otherwise $basePath->resolveRelative($relativePath)->toString() is returned.


    string|AbsolutePathInterface $basePath,
    string|AbsolutePathInterface $targetPath
): string;

Makes relative path from two absolute paths.

If a string is passed: it goes through PathFactory::parse().

If any of the paths is a relative path, an exception is thrown.

Otherwise $basePath->makeRelative($targetPath)->toString() is returned.
