FAQ
Found the problem. Looks like a return character...here is my solution.

$realname =
regsubst(generate('/usr/bin/readlink','/opt/level3/component/ams/repo/current'),'^(.*)\n$','\1')

Hi,
It seems like this should be pretty easy but I can't find a solution.

On my puppet master, I have a directory of zipped files. These are created
by another application. When a new zipped file is added to the directory,
the other application attaches a symlink to it called current.

/somepath/repo-1.tar.gz -> current

Then later...

/somepath/repo1.tar.gz
/somepath/repo-2.tar.gz -> current

I want puppet to copy the file pointed to by 'current' to the clients.

So far I have the following which will copy the file but, the name of the
file on the client is 'current'. I want it to be the actual name of the
file and not the name of the link.

class ams::config
{
file {
"ams_repos":
path => "/tmp/current", #????
owner => 'root',
group => 'root',
mode => 0644,
backup => true,
ensure => present,
links => follow,
source => "puppet:///repo_files/current",
}
}

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
