in thread resolving symbolic links in a pathname

Pardon the not-very-useful wild guess, but wasn't there a nice example program in some old Camel Book that would print out an output like

/home/mjd/foo.c /home/mjd/bar/baz/foo.c /home/mjd/bar-1.0/baz/foo.c /userhomes/m/j/mjd/bar-1.0/baz/foo.c /mnt/homevol/m/j/mjd/bar-1.0/baz/foo.c
as it progressively resolved the symlinks in higher and higher components of a path?

I thought it might have been one of those abandoned items in the Perl source eg/ directory, but I couldn't find it there, so the Camel Book was my next guess.

Addendum: This looks kinda interesting too.

    Yeah, in the pink Camel Book. I posted it here some time ago: Re: Following symlinks manually (historical code)

    ;-)

    --shmem

    _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                  /\_¯/(q    /
    ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
    ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
