  • It is my understanding that input files are unable to detect where they are located. So, an input file cannot call another inpt file by relative path. Instead (as in the dark red) the paths are always relative to the main TeX document. This is because each input file is not interpreted by itself. Instead, its text is first brought into the main document, just as if its text were directly written in the main document. Only then, is it evaluated. So, the fact that it began as an input file, no longer matters. Summary: Your request cannot be done.
