I am trying to pattern match autocmd to a directory referenced by a symlink. I don't want to refer to the actual directory name in my script as the symlink can change targets.
I have the directory foo/fr and foo/en etc, with a symlink foo/source that points to either fr or en. I want to run:
autocmd BufNew */source/* CallAFunction()
I only want to run autocmd on en/* or fr/* if it is the 'source'. Typically I would cd into 'source' and create the file there.
But I can see in the vim help/docs that this 'resolves' symlinks so I can't pattern match with that. I thought that maybe fnamemodify might help out here, but it also does the same.
Any suggestions on how to get around this?
