Bob or Anyone....

In simh if I have an

att rl0 diskdrive1

And the simulator is running, If I rename diskdrive1 to something and
rename something-else to diskdrive1 does the simulator care? will it
start accessing the new disk image or continue to access the old? I
know this would have implications for the simulated OS (rsts on a
pdp11) but will it cause problems for the simulator?

Likewise what about the paper tape punch/reader and lineprinter files?

Could I use links?

$>ln rsts-rl-system.dsk diskdrive1

Then to change disk packs I

$>ln rsts-rl-othersystem diskdrive1
