Create a directory in AL11

Hi guys,

AL11 (at least in 4.0B) displays whatever ABAP program RSWATCH0 tells it to
display. DIR_ATRA, DIR_BINARY, etc. are all hard coded into the program
which then does a lookup via a c program to find the directory associated
with the symbolic link. I'm not sure what table it uses for the lookup (it's
a call to a C program (C_SAPGPARAM)). I'm pretty sure this issue was
discussed before on this forum but so far I haven't been able to find it. I
think it was Mike Martin who supplied an example of a ZL11 transaction with
a copy of RSWATCH0 modified to include a symbolic link to the root
directory. I'll keep looking.

Hi Martin,

did you check the authority of these entries ?
Because SAP runs with SAPnn or SIDnn and show only the entries, that are
authorized for these users. I don't believe in a more sophisticated table.
