10.5.2.131 SymLnk Intrinsic (function)

 
SymLnk(Path1, Path2)

SymLnk: INTEGER(KIND=1) function.

Path1: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Path2: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Intrinsic groups: badu77.

Description:

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. Returns 0 on success or a non-zero error code (ENOSYS if the system does not provide symlink(2)).

Due to the side effects performed by this intrinsic, the function form is not recommended.

For information on other intrinsics with the same name: See section 8.11.9.240 SymLnk Intrinsic (subroutine).
