OS module in Python provides functions for interacting with the operating system. OS comes under Python’s standard utility modules. This module provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality.
os.link() method in Python is used to create a hard link. This method create a hard link pointing to source named destination.
To read about hard link, please refer this article.
Note: This method is only available on Windows and Unix platforms.
Syntax: os.link(src, dst, *, src_dir_fd = None, dst_dir_fd = None, follow_symlinks = True)
src: A path-like object representing the file system path. This is the source file path for which the hard link will be created
dst: A path-like object representing the file system path. This is the target file path where hard link will be created.
A path-like object is a string or bytes object which represents a path.
src_dir_fd (optional): A file descriptor referring to a directory.The default value of this parameter is None. If the specified src path is absolute then this parameter is ignored. If the specified src path is relative and src_dir_fd is not None then the specified src path is relative to the directory associated with src_dir_fd.
dst_dir_fd (optional): A file descriptor referring to a directory.
follow_symlinks (optional) : A Boolean value.
Return type: This method does not return any value.
Code: Use of
