link(1M)							      link(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     link, unlink - link and unlink files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     link file1	file2
     unlink file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The link command is used to create	a filename that	points to another
     file.  The	unlink command is used to remove a link	to a file.

     The only difference between ln(1) and link(1M) is that the	latter simply
     makes the link(2) system call with	the arguments specified.  No error
     checking is performed.  Analogously, unlink(1M) simply calls the
     unlink(2) system call with	the specified pathname.

     Use of these commands is discouraged.  The	commands ln(1),	rm(1), and
     rmdir(1) provide the necessary functionality in a safer manner.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     ln(1), rm(1), rmdir(1), link(2), unlink(2).
