It is written in the description of the move()-method on the middle of page 475 that symbolic links were followed by default. But in the Java-Doc of the method it is said "If the file is a symbolic link then the symbolic link itself, not the target of the link, is moved". But this would mean that symbolic links are not followed by default. Probably for this reason the option "NOFOLLOW_LINKS" is not listed for this method.
