getfullpath reconstructs the full path to a folder or file starting from
its relative path.
It has been tested on Linux, but it should work on Windows and Mac as
well.

Syntax:
fpath=getfullpath(relative_file_or_dir_name)

Example 1:
(assuming to be in /home/user/Documents/Matlab)

fpath = getfullpath('../../Music/')

fpath =

/home/user/Music/

Example 2:
(assuming to be in /home/user/Documents/Matlab)

fpath=getfullpath('../../Music/Song.mp3')

fpath =

/home/user/Music/Song.mp3
