Question:  

- How to manage versions of Dynamic (Symbolic) Links in SCM Harvest ?

Answer: 

- SCM Harvest does not manages special Unix Objects as Symbolic Links, the Object pointed by the Symbolic Link is what is Check In or Out by Harvest .

Suggested to use a script to recreate the Symbolic Links when needed and manage the

script file versions as any other text file in Harvest .

By example next basic script CreaSymLink.sh deletes/creates two Symbolic Links

 when it runs :

 cat CreaSymLink.sh :

  rm  libamexfmt.a  libamexfmt.b

  ln  -s libamexfmt-0.0.nn.a  libamexfmt.a

  ln  -s libamexfmt-0.0.nn.b  libamexfmt.b

 this updates Symbolic Links:

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root  root 19 Aug 20 16:11 libamexfmt.a -> libamexfmt-0.0.nn.a

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root  root 19 Aug 20 16:11 libamexfmt.b -> libamexfmt-0.0.nn.b
