Word description
Prepends the current-directory to the pathname and resolves a resource:, ~ or vocab: prefix, if present (see Special pathnames).

Notes
This word is exactly the same as normalize-path, except on Windows NT platforms, where it does not prepend the Unicode path prefix. Most code should call normalize-path instead.
