My OS have something called "assigns".
It's an very practical symbolic link thing.
Amigsos have basic "volumes" is this style:
The posix wrapper emulation translate this
into to "/sys" "/work" etc
"Assigns" gives you the possibility to map this way:
assign ulf: "work:ulf/test"
then you can "cd ulf:" and pwd will be "work:ulf/test"
Let's say you share "/"
Then you can cd "\\amiga\all"
But what you can do is:
And you dump right into "work:ulf/test"
I guess the security issue is quite ironic as the os
itself is not multiuser and have no real consept of file security.
Do any other os have simular behavior ?
What I consider is an set env variable like
Still using alien os =D
