9.261 SYMLNK — Create a symbolic link

Description:

Makes a symbolic link from file PATH1 to PATH2. A null character (CHAR(0)) can be used to mark the end of the names in PATH1 and PATH2; otherwise, trailing blanks in the file names are ignored. If the STATUS argument is supplied, it contains 0 on success or a nonzero error code upon return; see symlink(2). If the system does not supply symlink(2), ENOSYS is returned.

This intrinsic is provided in both subroutine and function forms; however, only one form can be used in any given program unit.
