UNIX users know and love it, now Windows users have the ability to give a single file multiple names.
If you have the existing file C:\DOCS\FILE.DOC and execute the command
FileLink C:\MEMO\ANOTHER.DOC C:\DOCS\FILE.DOCthe data of the file will exist only once, but it is accessible in two directories using two different names. Changes to the contents of one file affect both.
New in version 2:
- Wildcard support
- FileLink can now traverse directories, creating new directories for each source directory and links to each file in the source directories.
