That is the path to the temporary file (although that's doesn't look like a
temporary file generated by swish).
For example, if I use -S prog with a filter I get two arguments passed by
default to the filter.
FileFilter .html ./filter.pl
"filter.pl" simply prints out @ARGV:
Now, if you mean you want an absolute path from root set the location of
the temporary file to an absolute path:

It's useful if your filter needs to know just the directory name. Not sure
why a filter might need that, but it's there just in case.
