- Mar 23, 2012Hello Bram, Benjamin, and all,On Wed, Mar 21, 2012 at 2:27 AM, David Pope <d.e.pope@...> wrote:> A patch definitely helps. And a way to reproduce the problem.Reproduction is easy.
1. Create a symbolic link on Windows. (e.g. mklink link_path target_path)
2. open the file in Vim
3. write the file from Vim
The symbolic link has been destroyed, now it's a "real" file separate
from the file it was originally linked to.Here's my first shot at a patch that fixes the "can't save to symlinks" bug on Windows.<snip>Is there any feedback on this patch, or on the way the fix was presented? As I said earlier, I'm new to vim development so I'm all ears. :) Is there someone I need to direct this patch toward, e.g. someone who deals primarily with the Windows version of vim, to get it vetted/updated for mainline inclusion?Thanks,----
