NAMEI

Section: User Commands (1)
Updated: June 2011
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

namei - follow a pathname until a terminal point is found  

SYNOPSIS

namei [options] pathname...  

DESCRIPTION

namei interprets its arguments as pathnames to any type of Unix file (symlinks, files, directories, and so forth). namei then follows each pathname until an endpoint is found (a file, a directory, a device node, etc). If it finds a symbolic link, it shows the link, and starts following it, indenting the output to show the context.

This program is useful for finding "too many levels of symbolic links" problems.

For each line of output, namei uses the following characters to identify the file type found:

   f: = the pathname currently being resolved
    d = directory
    l = symbolic link (both the link and its 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.  

OPTIONS

-l, --long
Use the long listing format (same as -m -o -v).
-m, --modes
Show the mode bits of each file type in the style of ls(1), for example 'rwxr-xr-x'.
-n, --nosymlinks
Don't follow symlinks.
-o, --owners
Show owner and group name of each file.
-v, --vertical
Vertically align the modes and owners.
-x, --mountpoints
Show mountpoint directories with a 'D' rather than a 'd'.
-V, --version
Display version information and exit.
-h, --help
Display help text and exit.
