I have a lot of relative symbolic links that I want to move to another directory.
How can I move symbolic links (ones with a relative PATH) while preserving the right path?
You can turn relative paths into full paths using
readlink -f foo. So you would do something like:
ln -s $(readlink -f $origlink) $newlink rm $origlink
I noticed that you wish to keep the paths relative. In this case, after you move the link, you can use
symlinks -c to convert the absolute paths back into relative paths.
