How to reset filesystem::current_path() in C++17?

  boost-filesystem, c++, directory

I am writing a C++ program in which I change the working directory with std::filesystem::current_path(working_directory), where working_directory is a string. Is there a good way to, later in the program, reset the working directory to its original value? I understand that one solution would be to use a variable string initial_directory = std::filesystem::current_path() before I change the working directory and then later reset it with std::filesystem::current_path(initial_directory), but I feel like there should be a more elegant solution.

Thanks!
