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
       shtool(1), ln(1).
