I am experiencing an issue with a indexing program running much longer than expected. I want to rule out the possibility of a recursive symbolic link. How could I find a symbolic link that is recursive at some level?
This related question, provides a way to identify a recursive symbolic link using the
$ find -L . . ./a ./a/b ./a/b/c ./a/b/c/d find: File system loop detected; `./a/b/c/d/e' is part of the same file system loop as `./a/b'. find: `./a/b/e': Too many levels of symbolic links
