WIKI "Hard and Soft Links" error?

Post by xenic »

At the bottom of the WIKI page titled "Hard and Soft Links", it states that soft links are not supported by the MAKELINK command. The MAKELINK command has a "SOFT" argument so I think the WIKI is incorrect and should be updated.

It certainly should. Thanks for pointing it out.

BTW, these days the "Soft" option is the default in MakeLink (since V53.3). You need to specify the "Hard" option to make a hard link.
cheers

I think 53.2 is the last public version, though.

Best regards,

@all
Thanks kas1e. Actually the entire link explanation needs an update. The links WIKI page refers to ST_LINKFILE etc. which is obsolete (SDK:Include/include_h/dos/obsolete.h) and replaced with definitions like FSO_TYPE_SOFTLINK for the new ExamineData structure which replaces the use of the FileInfoBlock structure in OS4. Probably Colin Wenzel should be consulted about how the links WIKI page should be updated.
