linkutils

A set of tools to help in the manipulation of symlinks, using the File::Spec and Cwd::abs_path perl modules. They are released under the MIT licence, see COPYING.

Warning Most of these utilities deal only with symlinks, but some (mv_and_ln, squel) can also delete more general files on the filesystem, so use them with care, especially with the -f switch!

Description

Print or remove non valid symlinks.

abs_to_rel.pl

Description

Convert absolute symlinks to relative ones.

rel_to_abs.pl

Description

Convert relative symlinks to absolute ones.

mv_and_ln.pl

Description

Move a file around, and put a symlink on the original location to the new location.

Example: mv_and_ln.pl foo bar/ move foo in bar/foo and makes a symlink foo -> bar/foo.

rel_ln.pl

Description

Create a symlink to a file. Contrary to ln -s, the symlink is made in such a way that the symlink will point to the file, wherever you put it.

Example: rel_ln.pl foo bar/baz makes a symlink bar/baz -> ../foo. The usual way using ln -s foo bar/baz makes a symlink bar/baz -> foo. So bar/baz point to the file bar/foo which is probably not what was intended.

squel.pl

Description

Used to manage “packages”. A package is a directory containing directory and files. Installing a package to a directory consist of making symlinks in this directory to files in the package. I use this to install latex packages to ~/texmf, or before switching to pathogen to install vim packages in ~/.vim.

install_package and rm_package are wrappers around squel.pl.
