# Compare Two Paths (G Dataflow)

Version:

Compares the relationship between two file paths.

## path 1

First path you specify.

## path 2

Second path you specify.

## error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

## relative path from 1 to 2

Relative path you have to take on disk to get from path 1 to path 2.

## common path

Part of the absolute path that path 1 shares with path 2.

## path 2 relative to path 1?

A Boolean value that indicates the relationship between the two input paths.

 True The two paths are identical, or the first path is a containing folder of the second path. False The first path is not a containing folder of the second path.

## error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
