12.1 link: Make a hard link via the link syscall

link creates a single hard link at a time. It is a minimalist interface to the system-provided link function. See section `Hard Links' in The GNU C Library Reference Manual. Synopsis:

 
link filename linkname

filename must specify an existing file, and linkname must specify a nonexistent entry in an existing directory. link simply calls link (filename, linkname) to create the link.
