Hey All, I cannot seem to delete a soft link (ln -s) that is pointing to a directory without renaming the directory first. If I try to delete the link it complains that the link is a directory (which it is pointing to). If I delete using rm -rf, it deletes the directory that is pointed to but not the link -- I have been burned by that one!
FreeBSD 4.3 Here is a little test: %pwd /tmp %mkdir me %cd /root %ln -s /tmp/me MyTmp %rm -f MyTmp/ rm: MyTmp/: is a directory % %rm -rf MyTmp/ (deletes the directory it points to) %rm -f MyTmp (deletes the link) % Help, suggestions, magic?
