 for pathname
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  pathname
  pathspec
  
      (Or "path") The specification of a node (file or
     directory) in a hierarchical file system.  The path is usually
     specified by listing the nodes top-down, separating the
     directories by the pathname separator ("/" in Unix, "\" in
     MS-DOS).
  
     A pathname may be an absolute pathname (starting from the root
     directory, "/") or a relative pathname (starting from the
     current working directory).
  
     The part of the pathname of a file after the last separator is
     called the basename.
