pathmgr_symlink()

Create a symlink

Synopsis:

#include <sys/pathmgr.h>

int pathmgr_symlink( const char * path,
                     const char * symlink );

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Arguments:

path
The path that you want to link to.
symlink
The name of the link that you want to create.

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The pathmgr_symlink() function creates a symbolic link, path, in the process manager that redirects to the path specified by symlink.

In order to create the link, your process must have the PROCMGR_AID_PATHSPACE ability enabled. For more information, see procmgr_ability().

The pathmgr_unlink() function removes the link.

The symbolic link isn't permanent and is lost when the system reboots.

Returns:

0
Success.
-1
An error occurred ( errno is set).

Examples:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/pathmgr.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv) {

    /* Create a link from /mytmp to /dev/shmem */
    if(pathmgr_symlink("/dev/shmem", "/mytmp") == -1) {
            perror("Can't make link");
    }

    getchar();
    if(pathmgr_unlink("/mytmp") == -1) {
            perror("Can't unlink ");
    }

    return 0;
}
