LINK(2) LINK(2) Name link - Links one box to another. Synopsis #include <ulib.h> void link(char* s, char* sc, char* d, char* dc) Description Link arranges for the box d and constraint dc to be linked to the box s with constraint sc. S is considered the data source and d is considered the link. The meaning of link depends on the target box. For example, several system boxes accept links as a mean to make them point to the data source. However, the expected meaning when used on boxes implemented by the storage server is to repli- cate data. Both sc and dc must match as said in intro(1). Example link("/b/sys/null", nil, "/b/proc/me/io1", nil); Arranges for the output of the current process to be ignored. Source /src/b/port/box.c See also intro(2), and ln(1). Bugs The mechanism could be abused. If time tells so, it may be replaced by a different one.
