Using and Porting GNU Fortran

[ < ] [ > ]   [ << ] [ Up ] [ >> ]         [Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ] SymLnk Intrinsic (subroutine)

CALL SymLnk(Path1, Path2, Status)

Path1: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Path2: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).


Intrinsic groups: unix.


Makes a symbolic link from file Path1 to Path2. A null character (`CHAR(0)') marks the end of the names in Path1 and Path2---otherwise, trailing blanks in Path1 and Path2 are ignored. If the Status argument is supplied, it contains 0 on success or a non-zero error code upon return (ENOSYS if the system does not provide symlink(2)).

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine, or do not support the (optional) Status argument.

For information on other intrinsics with the same name: See section SymLnk Intrinsic (function).
