In Emacs, I set
t. It follows symlinks into Git repositories with no problem. However, it fails to follow links into Perforce repositories.
I usually set
nil, since my local Perforce repository is slow as molasses and without these settings, every file open within the repository takes an extra 3 seconds or so. Twiddling these variables doesn't make Emacs follow links. Poking around
p4.el, I found the variable
p4-follow-symlinks, which looked promising. However, setting it to
t had no effect.
Is there any way to get Emacs to follow links into Perforce repositories, or am I going to have to roll my own
