- <pinotree> hm, is it a known issue that open("somesymlink", O_RDONLY |
- O_NOFOLLOW) does not fail with ELOOP?
- <youpi> pinotree: iirc there is code for it, maybe not the same behavior as
- on linux
-## IRC, OFTC, #debian-hurd, 2013-05-08
- <pinotree> the hurd issue is that O_NOFOLLOW seems broken on symlinks, and
- thus open(symlink, O_NOFOLLOW) doesn't fail with ELOOP
- <youpi> I don't really see why it should fail
- <youpi> since NOFOLLOW says not to follow the symlink
- <pinotree> yeah, but you cannot open a symlink
- <youpi> ah right ok
- <youpi> interesting :)
