The [file->linkTo] method creates a link to the file referred to in the path of the [file] object to the new path specified by the first parameter. The method can take an optional second parameter which is a boolean that flags whether to create a hard link instead of a symbolic link. The default for this second parameter is false which means the method will create a symbolic link.
local(f) = file(...) #f->linkTo('/path/to/file.txt') local(f) = file(...) #f->linkTo('/path/to/file.txt', true)
The code below creates a symbolic link to the 'style.css' file in the '/css/' directory to the '/rhino/' directory.
local(styles) = file('/css/style.css') #styles->linkTo('/rhino/style.css')
