I'll do my best to explain what I am trying to achieve....
- Using Rational ClearCase Explorer 18.104.22.168
- Files used by RoboHelp 8
Every RoboHelp 8 project uses the same master page file (htt). This file is in every project directory. Is there a way to create symlinks from these duplicate files that would link to one VOB Symbolic link in clearcase?
Details of issue:
There are multiple instances of the x_footer.htt file (master Page) in the \docs\html\apps\projects directory. In particular, there is an independent copy of this file in each of the subfolders of the \docs\html\apps\projects folder.
Note: These htt files were added as a result of another author working on an older project hence, adding x_footer.htt master pages to every project directory.
There should not be multiple instances of the same file in the source control (using Rational ClearCase Explorer 22.214.171.124). Therefore, is it possible to reference the x_footer.htt file (e.g. VOB file) from my templates folder under my src\common_files directory, where I can link (TO), from all the other x_footer.htt files that are currently located in other project directories?
In other words, creating multiple symbolic links from multiple x_footer.htt files and linking them to a single "x_footer.htt VOB file" that resides in a single location (src\common_files).
The only other way I know of is a time consuming process; this would involve removing the x_footer.htm file from master pages from each help project and then creating one instance and then link to each project using symbolic links.
Thank you all for your time,
