Help needed on Symbolic links.... - Sun Solaris

Does anyone know how to get the actual referenced filename from a symbolic link from a c program. What would be the system call? There must be one, because "ls -l" will give you the link and then the reference. Can someone help please....

    The bottom of the symlink(2) man page mentions these functions..

    SEE ALSO
    cp(1), link(2), open(2), readlink(2), stat(2), unlink(2)

    I'll bet at least one of them is what you want. :-)
