    Link support

    Another newbie question...I just want to make sure. PysS60 (or for that matter, Symbian itself?) doesn't support hard links or symbolic links, correct? I'm using 1.4.2 with Symbian 9.1 (an E61i).

    I have never heard of anything like hard links nor symbolic links in Symbian OS. It's not a unix-linke operating system. Each file has just one unique name and that's it.

    Also I don't believe python offers such, but not so sure about python.

    Re: Link support

    Thanks, that's what I thought. There are plenty of references to links in the main Python docs, but they don't apply to Symbian. I had read some speculation online that link support was coming to a (then future) Symbian release, but that obviously hasn't happened...yet. I am working on my first project with PysS60, and while link support would make it much easier, I can work around their absence.
