I bet dired can't do this basic want:
I am sitting on top of
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 5 28 21:39 words -> /etc/alternatives/dictionary
and I would like, with just a keystroke, arrive at a revised dired
listing, i.e. that file now from the standpoint of /etc/alternatives
[which indeed is still a symbolic link, whereas i would execute the
command again, if i liked, to see the file listing with yet another
level of inderction stripped.

Notice that I don't want to see the file contents, else I would hit
RET in the first place.


Does `C-u s L RET' do what you want?


Notice that I don't want to strip all the symlinks at once, but rather
one by one, so I can learn just what's going on with my multi layered
symlinks, unless i suppose, i give an C-u prefix or something.


A symbolic link does not have "layers".
