Description:

Does StarTeam 2006 R2 support Symbolic Links?


Answer/Solution:

Currently StarTeam 2006 R2 does not support Symbolic Links per the following definition:

On UNIX systems, symbolic links are created on the command line using this syntax:

ln -s TARGET NAME

e.g.

ln -s http://support.borland.com/Library/Common/Math ./MathLibrary

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link

"In computing, a symbolic link (often shortened to symlink and also known as a soft link) consists of a special type of file that serves as a reference to another file or directory. Unix-like operating systems in particular often feature symbolic links."

Enhancement Request 1661 has been entered for this functionality.
