Its Ben Jann's tutorial that is hosted at Repec.  Kit Baum is the

They will be saved where you are telling them to be saved.  This is the
current working directory unless you specify otherwise (type -pwd- to
find out what your current working directory is).  You can specify
alternative directories using relative (to your current working
directory) or absolute paths.

Yes, thats an example of using the absolute (as opposed to relative) path.
