The symlinks would not work properly under a plain Win32 cmd. However, the unix symlink model is far from correct on win32 as it is. There are some environmental, and stdin/stdout strangeness from using the symlink.c method. I personally copy john.exe to whatever name I need (such as copy john.exe unique.exe). If done that way, all of the strange behaviors go away. Does "ln -s" not produce absolutely normal symlinks? IIRC Windows and NTFS has handled symlinks and hard links ever since the first NT version 20 years ago. I thought the only thing missing in the Windows world was userland tools. magnum
