Hi Everyone,
Is it possible to create a Symbolic link pointing to baselined version of a file in SCM? 

If so how would I go about it?

RTC 5.0

What are you trying to achieve? How would you achieve this in other SCM systems?

Daniel,

I'm going to guess you are maybe thinking something like ClearCase where a user could create a true *nix-style symbolic link, or a Windows-shortcut, to a ClearCase-extended-pathname for an element like 'ln -s /vobs/path/to/some/element@@/main/release_1/10 ./link'

If so, then no, I know of no way to do such a thing in RTC. ClearCase was able to use it due to MVFS making that possible (and only if your user was in a dynamic view with a correct config-spec for selection.)

I promoted Winston's comment to an answer, because I am reasonably sure that was what Daniel had in mind.
