NAME

shtool mkln - GNU shtool enhanced ln(1) replacement

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

shtool mkln [-t|--trace] [-f|--force] [-s|--symbolic] src-path [src-path ...] dst-path

DESCRIPTION

This is a ln(1) style command. It is enhanced to provide automatic calculation and usage of relative links with the shortest possible path, if possible. Usually if src-path and dst-path are not absolute paths or at least they share a common prefix except the root directory (‘‘/’’). When more than one src-path is specified, all of them are linked into dst-path.

OPTIONS

The following command line options are available.
-t, --trace Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed.
-f, --force Force the creation of the link even if it exists. Default is to fail with error.
-s, --symbolic Create a symbolic link instead of a hard-link.

EXAMPLE



 #   shell script
 shtool mkln -s foo/bar baz/quux



HISTORY

The GNU shtool fixperm command was originally written by Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com> in 1998 for ePerl.
