12.4 Symlink creation options

These are discussed in detail in Creating symlinks.


For each file uploaded to the server, create the latest symlink. The name of the symlink is obtained by replacing version number in the file name with the word ‘-latest’. For example, link name for the archive foo-1.0.tar.gz will be foo-latest.tar.gz.

--transform-symlink s-exp

For each uploaded file, create a symlink, with the name obtained by applying a sed expression s-exp to the file name.


This option is provided for compatibility with the gnupload script. It is equivalent to --transform-symlink s-exp, if s-exp is supplied, and to --latest otherwise. Notice, that the argument, if present, must be delimited from the option name by a single equals sign with no additional whitespace on either side of it.
