SYNOPSIS

highlnk target_directory

DESCRIPTION

HighLnk is a high-performance hardlinking tool, which takes the contents of the current directory, and hard-links files with different content to the target directory. Files with same content will also be hard-linked but in a way that storage space is saved. This is useful if you have many files on a read-only partition, or if you plan to put many files on a CD/DVD, but the whole tree is just too big to fit on the media. HighLnk can help mkisofs(8) by supplying hard-links to same content, saving space on the media.

PARAMETERS

target_directory
  This is the location where the resulting tree will be put. It MUST be on the same drive/partition as the current dir, otherwise it won’t work.
