I have 50+ folders, each of which contain a large amount of data that needs to be processed. All of them are processed using the exact same code, utilizing os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(file)) to get the directory in which the python script is located so there is no manual editing needed by the user, they just need to double click.
I need the script to appear to be in each folder while actually only being in 1 place, so I can edit it once and then when it is run from any of these locations have the folder path be correct. The alternative is editing the master and then pasting one folder at a time though all 50+ folders any time I update the code, which is very very tedious and error prone. On Linux I could set this up with a symbolic link, but I can't figure out a way to do it on windows.
Alternately, a way to paste the file into all the target directories at once, instead of one at a time, would accomplish the same goal.
