Error in oracle tutorial for NIO2. toRealPath API cannot take boolean as param::



The toRealPath method returns the real path of an existing file. This method performs several operations in one:

If true is passed to this method and the file system supports symbolic links, this method resolves any symbolic links in the path.
If the Path is relative, it returns an absolute path.
If the Path contains any redundant elements, it returns a path with those elements removed.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
