Projects / clink


clink replaces duplicate files in Unix filesystems with symbolic links. It can achieve good space savings, for example on automatically-generated directory structures, such as compiling toolchains. It is fast; it reads each file only once, and its runtime is mainly the time taken to read files. It also consumes very little RAM and is very easy to use.

      Release Notes: Support for command line options was added. The new "--dry-run" option was added, and just reports identical files and potential space savings without making any changes.
