With the link symbol
+>, you opt to link all of the files in a
directory to corresponding files in another directory. This procedure is
sometimes useful for installing software. In the example
links: myclass:: /usr/local/bin +> /usr/local/lib/perl/bin /opt +>! /local
every file in the directory
/usr/local/lib/perl/bin is linked
symbolically to a corresponding file in
`pling' character forces cfengine to replace old links or plain files
already existing. Old links are removed, whereas old files are saved
by appending `.cfsaved' to the filename See section 3.8.39 Repository.
Each time cfengine runs it goes through all of the files in the
directory concerned and checks the appropriate link accordingly. If new
files appear, new links will be added. If a file disappears but the
link to it remains, a warning will be issued, unless the
command line option is used, in which case the link is deleted.
