NAME         top

       sln - create symbolic links

SYNOPSIS         top

       sln source dest
       sln filelist

DESCRIPTION         top

       The sln program creates symbolic links.  Unlike the ln(1)
       program, it is statically linked.  This means that if for some
       reason the dynamic linker is not working, sln can be used to make
       symbolic links to dynamic libraries.

       The command line has two forms.  In the first form, it creates
       dest as a new symbolic link to source.

       In the second form, filelist is a list of space-separated
       pathname pairs, and the effect is as if sln was executed once for
       each line of the file, with the two pathnames as the arguments.

       The sln program supports no command-line options.
