Pretty lame to rely on grep and "\->"? Maybe. But it works ;)

Alternatives

There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives
\ls -1 | xargs -l readlink

For those who don't have the symlinks command, you can use readlink. This command is not straightforward because readlink is very picky. The backslash in front of 'ls' means not to use an alias (e.g. color escape codes from an aliased 'ls' could mess up readlink), and the -1 (one) means to print the entries separated by newlines. xargs -l (the letter L) means to process each input separated by newlines as separate commands.

ls -la | grep ^l
find /was61 -type l
find /was61 -type l
find /was61 -type l
