lrealpath(1)                                                      lrealpath(1)




NAME

       lrealpath  -  print  the  fully-resolved absolute path of the specified
       files


SYNOPSIS

       lrealpath [-f file_list] [-h(elp)] [-p(ipe)] [-v(erbose)] [file...]


DESCRIPTION

       lrealpath prints out the true path of the specified  files  instead  of
       symlink locations.


OPTIONS

       -h     Print help and quit.

       -f filelist
              Read the names of files to be processed from the specified file.

       -p     Read the names of files to be processed from stdin.

       -v     Verbose output.  Print the original filename along with the true
              filename.


NOTES

       The  -f and -p options can be used simultaneously with filenames speci-
       fied on the command-line.

       Note that this program operates very similarly to  realpath  -e.   [The
       realpath  program was added to GNU coreutils 8.15 in 2012.]  If are you
       trying to write highly portable shell scripts, you might consider using
       realpath instead.
