Re: How to convert a regular file to a sym link?

Any more thoughts on this? I need to solve this problem pretty soon, would like to do this for all my files across the board in a more-elegant way then the following:

>The only thing I can think of right now is to 'svn revert', 'svn del', then 'svn add' the file after running my ldconfig (that creates the sym link) again. This seems rather cumbersome to do for every file.

To be clear, all these files show up as:

# svn status
~ mylib.so.1.0
[...]

Thanks for any help. More details below.
