Re: symbolic links on Paragon Linux File systems




 Hi Corinnayou are right,I mixed it the symlink with the hard link
the symlink is sl (on file source)

E:\>type sl
source < just the filename as you say>

but the hard link does work (on file source)
E:\>type hl
hallo
erna
otto
hugo

E:\>echo rudi >> source

E:\>type hl
hallo
erna
otto
hugo
rudi

or with cygwin
$pwd/cygdrive/eecho hajo >>source
$ cat hl
hallo
erna
otto
hugo
rudi
hajo

Not in my testing.  I installed the Paragon trial driver and tested
on a filesystem with files and symlinks created by native Linux.  The
symlinks are not understood at all.  From the Windows perspective they
are just plain files with the name of the target file as content.
