Also, though I’m new at this, is it not true the truename should return the resolved symbolic link path?




Status update: In the meantime, I've had a chance to review the ECL code. Turns out there is support for symbolic links already, but only for POSIX-ish platforms which provide readlink(), not for the Windows version.

I've added some shortcut resolution code and got (probe-file), (open) and (truename) working, kind of, and now need to find out what to do for load.
