Bash: retrieve absolute path given relative

Is there a command to retrieve the absolute path given the relative path?

For example I want $line to contain the absolute path of each file in dir

./etc/


find ./ -type f | while read line; do
echo $line
done

Answer

use:

find $(pwd)/ -type f

to get all files or

echo $(pwd)/$line

to display full path (if relative path matters to)
