nameibut it result returns in form
$ namei /etc/gdc f: /etc/gdc d / d etc l gdc -> /home/hynek/.gdc d / d home d hynek l .gdc -> work/tiger/bear/common/etc/gdc d work d tiger l bear -> bear.trunk/ d bear.trunk d common d etc d gdcbut I suspected something more like
$ abs_path /etc/gdc /home/hynek/work/tiger/bear.trunk/common/etc/gdcI haven't found anything better than make alias in my
alias abs_path='perl -MCwd -le'\''print Cwd::abs_path($_) foreach @ARGV'\'
Edit: As ZD notice
readlink -f does same work. Thanks.
readlink -m and
readlink -e works as well but differs if some parts missing. I have decided to use
alias abs_path='readlink -m'
