I have an application which is actually a windows application but the files for the application are sitting on a solaris server.
The application has a config directory which it expects to find off the application directory. I would like to have this config directory actually in the home directory of each user so that each is able to have their own config directory.
I am thinking something along the lines of a symlink that points to ~/config although exactly how to do this escapes me at the moment... ie.
ln -s \~/config config
doesn't work because then the '~/' is interpreted as part of the file name.
ln -s ~/config config
doesn't work because it replaces the ~ with my home dir path...
Can anyone tell me how I'd do this ?
