Link Intrinsic (function)

     Link(Path1, Path2)

Link: INTEGER(KIND=1) function.

Path1: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Path2: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Intrinsic groups: badu77.


Makes a (hard) 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. See link(2).

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