Versions of Non-File Objects

In all modern operating systems, files are organized into directories (or folders). Some operating systems also support additional kinds of file system objects: symbolic links, hard links, device files, named pipes, etc.

AccuRev provides full version-control of directories. A new version of a directory records the renaming of he directory or the moving of the directory to another location in the depot’s directory hierarchy. AccuRev provides file-link and directory-link objects, which can be used to version-control hard links and symbolic links/junction points.
