Function std::os::unix::fs::symlink

pub fn symlink<P: AsRef<Path>, Q: AsRef<Path>>(src: P, dst: Q) -> Result<()>
This is supported on Unix only.

Creates a new symbolic link on the filesystem.

The dst path will be a symbolic link pointing to the src path.


On Windows, you must specify whether a symbolic link points to a file or directory. Use os::windows::fs::symlink_file to create a symbolic link to a file, or os::windows::fs::symlink_dir to create a symbolic link to a directory. Additionally, the process must have SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege in order to be able to create a symbolic link.


use std::os::unix::fs;

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