Linux – How to get full path of a file

filelinuxpathunix

Is there an easy way I can print the full path of file.txt ?

file.txt = /nfs/an/disks/jj/home/dir/file.txt

The <command>

dir> <command> file.txt  

should print

/nfs/an/disks/jj/home/dir/file.txt

Best Solution

Use readlink:

readlink -f file.txt
