Program for looking up Symbolic links on a system

I currently don't have any tools that can look up symbolic links on a system. If anyone has recommendations please drop a line in the forums and let me know :-)


I noticed the comment above on the website & would like to offer up the following which may be of use:

Thats a nice tool, but it doesn't do the registry.

What I need is to find out what API's or how to pull the symbolic links from code, this way I could make a program that could test and see if it finds anything that would cause an infinite loop because of a bad placed link :wink:
