#415 closed enhancement (fixed)

read-symbolic-link canonicalization of a non-link

Description

In "canonicalize" mode, read-symbolic-link resolves symlinks recursively until a non-link is returned. However, if you pass it a non-link to start, it will throw an error. In my opinion, it should treat this as a base case and return the non-link instead of throwing an error.
