Creating symbolic links to files

P: n/a
Hi All,
.NET 1.1 doesn't support creating symbolic links to files,
like in Linux? Can i use C# to make a file point to another file?

Thanks.

The equivalent to symbolic links in Windows is called "NTFS Junction
Points". Creating them in C# requires using P/Invoke to call the Windows
APIs. You can find sample code here:
