I have a project at
/long/ass/path/to/project that has many soft links within it.
Whenever I need to run a new batch in the project I create a link from the output of the last batch to the input of the new batch as so:
ln -s ../../stage4/output ./input/
Relative links don't hold very well when being moved around, so I tend to go for absolute links like so:
ln -s /long/ass/path/to/project/stage4/output ./input/
My question, is there a way to change the root of the link or a trick a directory into thinking it's root without blocking off the rest of the filesystem, so that I can just type:
ln -s /stage4/output ./input
