    Command:

    namei

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           namei [options] pathname...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Namei  uses  its  arguments as pathnames to any type of Unix file (sym-
           links, files, directories, and so  forth).   Namei  then  follows  each
           pathname  until  a  terminal  point  is  found (a file, directory, char
           device, etc).  If it finds a symbolic link, we show the link, and start
           following it, indenting the output to show the context.
    
           This  program  is  useful  for  finding  a "too many levels of symbolic
           links" problems.
    
           For each line output, namei outputs a the following characters to iden-
           tify the file types found:
    
              f: = the pathname we are currently trying to resolve
               d = directory
               l = symbolic link (both the link and it's contents are output)
               s = socket
               b = block device
               c = character device
               p = FIFO (named pipe)
               - = regular file
               ? = an error of some kind
    
           Namei prints an informative message when the maximum number of symbolic
           links this system can have has been exceeded.
