Instance Method

symbolicLinkDestination

Provides the pathname referenced by the file wrapper object, which must be a symbolic-link file wrapper.

Declaration

- (NSString *)symbolicLinkDestination;

Return Value

Pathname the file wrapper references (the destination of the symbolic link the file wrapper represents).

Discussion

Beginning with OS X v10.6, the preferred method of referring to files is with a file:// URL. Therefore, this method has been deprecated in favor of symbolicLinkDestinationURL.

This method raises NSInternalInconsistencyException if the receiver is not a symbolic-link file wrapper.
