Is there a method of creating a symbolic file that refers to the contents of a directory?
So for example, calling:
would give the same output as:
I've tried creating a symbolic link to the directory, tried various flags to try and get the Data and even trying to make a symbolic link that runs the command:
Akin to the manner in which Logical Volume can span multiple physical partitions, I'd like to know if I can create a file that spans an arbitrary and flexible length of data.
For context: I'm getting really frustrated with the flatfile system used for ssh authorised_keys.
I know I could use a SED to remove the key data but that seems messy. I'm sure there's other uses outside of this scope too.
Thanks in Advance.
In the end I just went with SED in place to make the deletions and comments before the key block to identify it.
It's a little more expensive CPU wise than I'd have liked, but avoids either repeating all the key data in a folder and a file or trying to make a fuse directory.
