Has anyone a good way of converting absolute symbolic links to relative,
and vice versa? For example, imagine that I have a symlink in
/some/random/dir, such as
foo -> ../../other/dir/foo.
What I would like is to be able to convert this to a link
foo -> /some/other/dir/foo,
or convert it back---in some way that lends itself to automation over
hundreds of links. Assuming no simple and elegant solution already
exists, should I start writing 'abslink' and 'rellink' as zsh or perl
scripts, or is this really a job for C?
