Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7089) Use readlink to get absolute paths in the scripts
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2011 04:27:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12978117#action_12978117

Greg Roelofs commented on HADOOP-7089:

...and looks like older versions of GNU readlink don't accept the -m option.  This is the
--help output from version 5.2.1:

  -f, --canonicalize      canonicalize by following every symlink in every
                          component of the given path recursively
  -n, --no-newline        do not output the trailing newline
  -q, --quiet,
  -s, --silent            suppress most error messages
  -v, --verbose           report error messages
      --help     display this help and exit
      --version  output version information and exit

-m -n.  Ditto with other uses of cd + pwd to get an absolute path, which can be fragile.
