SHTOOL-MKLN.TMP(1)	    GNU	Portable Shell Tool	    SHTOOL-MKLN.TMP(1)

NAME
       shtool mkln - GNU shtool	enhanced ln(1) replacement

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.

SEE ALSO
