I've got a pretty specific problem. I get the location to a file from a CFileDialog, which returns the full path to the file, however I only want the relative path to the file. I can get the path to the current working directory using the _getcwd function. So if the full path to the file is "C:\projects\code\models\stuff.dat" and the current working directory is "C:\projects\code" is there an easy way to get "\models\stuff.dat"? It seems like one of those things the STL would probably be able to do in one function call or something, but I can't seem to put my finger on it. Any help is appreciated.
