symlink_list - Show the file to which a symlink points [Windows only]
symlink list [-name] <file name> [-help]
The symlink list command shows if a file is a symbolic link and, if so, shows to which file the link points.
The symlink commands are only available on Windows platforms. On other platforms, use the readlink command.
Specify one or more symbolic links to list.
-name is optional,
but the file name is not.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
This command prints "'file' is a symlink to 'otherfile'" or "'file' is not a symlink."
Given that file
mylink is a link pointing to file
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.
The issuer must have the
l (look) and
r (read) permissions on the ACL of the directory that houses the symlink.
