[emms-help] [PATCH] Follow symlinks when using GNU find

Subject: [emms-help] [PATCH] Follow symlinks when using GNU find

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.2 (gnu/linux)


When choosing `emms-source-file-directory-tree-find' as the function to
perform file discovery with the following snippet in my .emacs:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(require 'emms-setup)
(setq emms-source-file-directory-tree-function
(setq emms-source-file-default-directory "~/Music/")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then when using M-x emms-add-directory-tree RET ~/Music/ RET, symlinks
are not followed (I have a symlink pointing to a music collection on
external storage). This was reported in 2014[1] but it seems that it
failed to be noticed/merged (as of EMMS 4.3).

The attached trivial (one line) patch adds the -L option to the
find command and enables the use of symlinks in a music collection

Thanks for this useful of software!
