How can I retreive the location that a symbolic link points to on Windows?
Posted on 2006-07-06
I need to get the canonical form of a path. To do so, I need to resolve symbolic links if some are found in the input path. On unix, I used lstat() to see if the dirrectory or the file is a symbolic link, if so then I use readlink() to get the location that the link points to.
Now I need to implement the same thing on Windows, but I can't find how I can get this information about a symbolic link.
