public unowned string get_filename (FileType file_type, string[] path_segments)

Gets the pathname to a data file that is required for a test.

This is the same as build_filename with two differences. The first difference is that you must only use this function from within a testcase function. The second difference is that you need not free the return value — it will be automatically freed when the testcase finishes running.

It is safe to use this function from a thread inside of a testcase but you must ensure that all such uses occur before the main testcase function returns (ie: it is best to ensure that all threads have been joined).



the type of file (built vs. distributed)


the first segment of the pathname


null-terminated additional path segments


the path, automatically freed at the end of the testcase
