Description

Handling symbolic link using Win32 API. [Vista of later and desktop app only]

Note: You should worry about UAC (User Account Control) when use this module's function in your application:

  • require to use 'Run As Administrator' to run your application.
  • or modify your application's manifect file to add <requestedExecutionLevel level=requireAdministrator uiAccess=false/>.

type SymbolicLinkFlags = DWORD Source

c_CreateSymbolicLink :: LPTSTR -> LPTSTR -> SymbolicLinkFlags -> IO BOOL Source

sYMBOLIC_LINK_FLAG_FILE :: SymbolicLinkFlags Source

sYMBOLIC_LINK_FLAG_DIRECTORY :: SymbolicLinkFlags Source

createSymbolicLink Source

Arguments

:: FilePath

Target file path

-> FilePath

Symbolic link name

-> SymbolicLinkFlags
-> IO ()

createSymbolicLink* functions don't check that file is exist or not.

NOTE: createSymbolicLink* functions are flipped arguments to provide compatiblity for Unix, except createSymbolicLink'.

If you want to create symbolic link by Windows way, use createSymbolicLink' instead.

createSymbolicLinkFile :: FilePath -> FilePath -> IO () Source

createSymbolicLinkDirectory :: FilePath -> FilePath -> IO () Source

createSymbolicLink' Source

Arguments

:: FilePath

Symbolic link name

-> FilePath

Target file path

-> SymbolicLinkFlags
-> IO ()
