lnadd



NAME

      lnadd - Create symbolic links to files placed in another directory.


SYNOPSIS

      lnadd file_dir [ln_dir]


DESCRIPTION

      The command creates symbolic links in the ln_dir to the files placed
      in the file_dir directory. If a file is already present in the ln_dir
      directory, it is overwritten if the file in the file_dir is newer.

    PARAMETERS
      file_dir
           Specifies the directory to which files the symbolic links should
           be created.

      ln_dir
           Specifies the directory in which should the links be created. By
           default, the current directory is taken.

    OPTIONS
      -i   Ask for each file in the file_dir if the link should be created.

      -l   Create the link to the RCS subdirectory too.

      -d   Create also links to the subdirectories placed in the file_dir
           (except RCS, unless -l was specified, too).

      -r   If a file in the file_dir is actually a symbolic link, do not
           point at it, but on the real file.

      -o   Write over the files (not directories) present in the ln_dir.  By
           default, the files (not directories) are overwritten if they are
           older than files in the file_dir

      -k   If a file is already present in the ln_dir, keep it.

      -v   Show links that are created.



EXAMPLES

      $ lnadd /ipa/projects/proj1/members/work1

      creates links in the current directory which point to the files placed
      in the /ipa/projects/proj1/members/work1 directory.
