READLINK(2)                Linux Programmer's Manual               READLINK(2)

       readlink - read value of a symbolic link

       #include <unistd.h>

       ssize_t readlink(const char *path, char *buf, size_t bufsiz);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       readlink(): _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 500 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

       readlink()  places  the contents of the symbolic link path in the buffer buf, which
       has size bufsiz.  readlink() does not append a null byte to buf.  It will  truncate
       the contents (to a length of bufsiz characters), in case the buffer is too small to
       hold all of the contents.

       On success, readlink() returns the number of bytes placed in buf.  On error, -1  is
       returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

       EACCES Search  permission  is denied for a component of the path prefix.  (See also

       EFAULT buf extends outside the process's allocated address space.

       EINVAL bufsiz is not positive.

       EINVAL The named file is not a symbolic link.

       EIO    An I/O error occurred while reading from the file system.

       ELOOP  Too many symbolic links were encountered in translating the pathname.

              A pathname, or a component of a pathname, was too long.

       ENOENT The named file does not exist.

       ENOMEM Insufficient kernel memory was available.

              A component of the path prefix is not a directory.

       4.4BSD (the readlink() function call appeared in 4.2BSD), POSIX.1-2001.

       In versions of glibc up to and including glibc 2.4, the return type  of  readlink()
       was  declared as int.  Nowadays, the return type is declared as ssize_t, as (newly)
       required in POSIX.1-2001.
