create a relative symlinkby Skeeve (Parson)
|on Dec 16, 2019 at 07:34 UTC||Need Help??|
Skeeve has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm wondering how I could create a relative symlink in perl.
Currently I'm using symlink in a perl script running in a docker container. The created link is an absolute link - for the container. On the docker host otoh this link is a broken link.
Now I'm wondering whether or not it's possible to create relative links in perl. I fear this can only be done by changing to the directory where the original file resides or by relying on a systemcall invoking ln -rs …, right?
But maybe someone here has another good idea?
