NAME

symlink_list - Show the file to which a symlink points [Windows only]

SYNOPSIS

symlink list [-name] <file name> [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The symlink list command shows if a file is a symbolic link and, if so, shows to which file the link points.

CAUTIONS

The symlink commands are only available on Microsoft Windows platforms. On UNIX platforms, use the readlink command.

OPTIONS

[-name] <file name>

Specify one or more symbolic links to list. The -name is optional, but the file name is not.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

This command prints "'file' is a symlink to 'otherfile'" or "'file' is not a symlink."

EXAMPLES

Given that file mylink is a link pointing to file myfile, the following commands will list the files:

   % symlink list -name mylink
   'mylink' is a symlink to 'myfile'

   % symlink list mylink
   'mylink' is a symlink to 'myfile'

   % symlink list -name myfile
   'myfile' is not a symlink.

   % symlink list myfile
   'myfile' is not a symlink.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must have the l (lookup) permissions on the directory and r (read) permission on the symlink object.
