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.
