Add method to determine if one path is a descendant of another

vmalloc avatarvmalloc created an issue

A naive approach (should probably be a bit more sophisticated to check drives etc.):

def is_parent_of(self, other):
    return not str(other.resolve().relative_to(self.resolve())).startswith("..")

    I guess that "there is only one obvious way to do it" approach for this problem should be some_path in other_path.parents. And it works already, reducing to iteration on other_path.parents and successive comparison.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
