e2ln - Man Page

create hard links on an ext2 filesystem


e2ln [options] source destination


The e2ln command is used to create hard links on an ext2 filesystem.



Force the operation to remove any existing files.


Create a symlink.


Be verbose.

Note: creating symlinks is not operational at this time.


This will remove `/data/process_status` if it exists and isn't already a hard link to `/data/info/status`.

   e2ln -vf /dev/hdb1:/data/info/status /data/process_status
