Re: editing symlinked files

Hello, Christian!

When I edit a symlinked file with mc or mc -e, respectivly, after saving
it became an regular file. So the changes are not applied to the
original file and the symlink does not exist any more. It this a correct
behaviour of mc? Is this configureable?

It is configurable.  It the editor menu select Options -> Save Mode.
Quick Save keeps the symlink and changes the original file.  Safe Save
writes to a separate file and then replaces the symlink with it.
