A new wrinkle with hard links. If you are testing for them in
pdksh, they will always fail. I.E.:
if test -L links/$filename.$inumb
ln $filename $filename.$inumb
The above test will always fail and thus will always attempt to
re-create the hard link.
test -L tests for symbolic links, not for hardlinks.
So both the program and the documentation are wrong??? Who'd have thought it?
[ expression ]
-h file file is a symbolic link.
-L file file is a symbolic link.
