Hello, many thanks for this nice package.
Would it be useful (my view is yes) to add to link_create an option

  • force that would essentially be link ln -sf new old
  • silent that would allow to fail silently if the link already exists

Thanks for the lightening fast implementation.
Do I get from this that silent is default and that you do not think you want to add force ?

Yes that is right, this gives link_create() the same behavior as file_create() and dir_create().
