8.1 version

symbolic-link-p

Arguments: pathname

If pathname names a symbolic link, returns the physical pathname of the file pointed to by the link. If pathname does not name a symbolic link, this function returns nil. nil is also returned if the item named by pathname does not exist, or the directory or filesystem do not exist but an error is signaled if pathname names a logical pathname with an undefined or untranslatable logical host.

pathname should be a pathname object or a string naming a pathname. The behavior when pathname names a circular link is undefined.

See also pathnames.htm for general information on pathnames in Allegro CL and see pathname-resolve-symbolic-links.
