REALPATH(1)							   REALPATH(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     realpath -	prints the real	file name

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/lib/desktop/realpath path

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     realpath provides command-line access to the realpath(3C) library
     routine.  realpath	uses the realpath(3C) library routine to resolve all
     links, symbolic links, and	references to ``.'' and	``..'' in path and
     prints the	result to stdout.  If the realpath(3C) call fails for any
     reason, path is printed and a non-zero exit status	is returned.

     The realpath command is intended for use by developers who	need access to
     absolute pathnames	for their FTR rules.

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

     Suppose that /usr/people/guest is a symlink to
     /otherdisk/usr/people/guest and that the current working directory	is

     % /usr/lib/desktop/realpath /usr/people/guest/.profile
     % echo $status

     % /usr/lib/desktop/realpath ../guest/.profile
     % echo $status

     % /usr/lib/desktop/realpath aBadFileName
     % echo $status
