TLDR
Enter a command. For example: mocp, isoinfo, xdotool, lsmod, physlock.

namei

 
Follows a pathname (which can be a symbolic link) until a terminal point is found (a file/directory/char device etc). This program is useful for finding "too many levels of symbolic links" problems. More information: https://manned.org/namei.
 
  • Resolve the pathnames specified as the argument parameters:
     
    namei {{path/to/a}} {{path/to/b}} {{path/to/c}}
     
  • Display the results in a long-listing format:
     
    namei --long {{path/to/a}} {{path/to/b}} {{path/to/c}}
     
  • Show the mode bits of each file type in the style of ls:
     
    namei --modes {{path/to/a}} {{path/to/b}} {{path/to/c}}
     
  • Show owner and group name of each file:
     
    namei --owners {{path/to/a}} {{path/to/b}} {{path/to/c}}
     
  • Don't follow symlinks while resolving:
     
    namei --nosymlinks {{path/to/a}} {{path/to/b}} {{path/to/c}}
