Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9483) winutils support fo readlink command
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 17:31:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9483?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13634224#comment-13634224
] 

Chris Nauroth commented on HADOOP-9483:
---------------------------------------

This came from discussion on HADOOP-9043.  I'm pasting the relevant comments from that jira
into this one.  There are test failures on Windows in {{TestLocalFSFileContextSymlink}} due
to lack of readlink support.

> The current codebase relies on the Unix readlink command to determine the target of a
symlink on the local file system.  winutils currently does not support this functionality
on Windows.  Adding the command to winutils will prevent the need to use GnuWin32 or Cygwin
for readlink support.
