Summary0001033: relative path symlinks
DescriptionIn the alt+f6 'link' dialog, even if I enter a relative path, FAR will always create an absolute-path symlink. Hardlinks/junctions are probably affected as well (did not test).

Using the 'mklink' commandline utility in vista, I can create a relative-path symlink, which shows that it is indeed possible to achieve.
Additional InformationI guess FAR just normalizes the path before creating the link?
TagsNo tags attached.

I think, we should leave path "as is" for symlinks, but not for junctions.

Is this still relevant?

AltF6 can't create relative symlinks by design, because you provide path for symlink object itself, not for it's target.

Relative symlinks can be created in Far3 via "Make Folder" function (F7).
