I'm assuming you mean from the wiki markup. One mechanism is to
create a custom InterMap entry for your server. For example,
if you create an entry in local/localmap.txt that reads
then you can use "rel:/path/to/file.txt" to refer to /path/to/file.txt
on the current server. Of course you can name "rel" whatever you wish.
There is a currently a proposal outstanding to have any link target
beginning with '/' be treated as a relative url; if this is implemented
one could do [[/path/to/file.txt]] to generate the same thing. But
so far it hasn't gotten a lot of discussion or support.
