Manual page for LINK(8V)

link, unlink - exercise link and unlink system calls


/usr/etc/link filename1 filename2

/usr/etc/unlink filename


This command is available with the System V software installation option. Refer to [a manual with the abbreviation INSTALL] for information on how to install optional software.


link and unlink perform their respective system calls on their arguments, abandoning all error checking.


rm.1 link.2v unlink.2v


Only the super-user can unlink a directory, in which case the files it contains are lost. The files can, however, be recovered from the file system's lost+found directory after performing an fsck.

If you have write permission on the directory in which filename resides, unlink removes that file without warning, regardless of its ownership.
