shtool-mkshadow - GNU shtool create shadow tree using symlinks SYNOPSIS
shtool mkshadow [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] [-a|--all] src-dir dst-dir DESCRIPTION
This command creates a shadow tree of src-dir under dst-dir by recreating the directory hierarchy of src-dir under dst-dir and by creating the files of src-dir by linking them into the corresponding directories under dst-dir via symbolic links. When src-dir can be reached via relative paths from dst-dir, relative symbolic links are used, too. This high-level functionality is originally designed for developers to create copies of source trees. OPTIONS
The following command line options are available. -v, --verbose Display some processing information. -t, --trace Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed. -a, --all Really shadow all files and directories in src-dir. Default is to skip CVS related files and directories, backup files, object files, etc. EXAMPLE
# shell script shtool mkshadow -v -a . /tmp/shadow HISTORY
The GNU shtool mkshadow command was originally written by Ralf S. Engelschall <> in 1998 for Apache. It was later revised and taken over into GNU shtool. SEE ALSO

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 <> in 1998 for ePerl. SEE ALSO
