Tired of running into "Too many levels of symlinks" problems on
your 4.2 BSD derivitive machine?
We sure did... our NFS'ed network of lots of Suns, Vaxen and so forth
made it impossible at times to trace down where a file REALLY lived.
I mean ls -l is nice, but wouldn't you like to follow things like
the namei routine in the kernel does?
Well here it is.... the namei program. It follows things out until
a terminal state is found.
This program compiles and runs under:
SunOS 4.0.1 (sun3's)
SunOS 4.0.3 (sun4's)
SunOS 4.1.1 (sun4's)
Ultrix 3.1
BSD 4.3
and probably a host of other 4.2 derived systems (but probably not
System V).
Anyway, if anyone has any bugs (or enhancements), please send them to
me in E-mail form.
And, by the way, if you make LOTS of money off of this program, please
don't tell me :-).
