Function std::fs::soft_link

pub fn soft_link<P: AsRef<Path>, Q: AsRef<Path>>(src: P, dst: Q) -> Result<()>
Deprecated since 1.1.0: replaced with std::os::unix::fs::symlink and std::os::windows::fs::{symlink_file, symlink_dir}

Creates a new symbolic link on the filesystem.

The dst path will be a symbolic link pointing to the src path. On Windows, this will be a file symlink, not a directory symlink; for this reason, the platform-specific std::os::unix::fs::symlink and std::os::windows::fs::{symlink_file, symlink_dir} should be used instead to make the intent explicit.

Examples

use std::fs;

fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    fs::soft_link("a.txt", "b.txt")?;
    Ok(())
}
