use this script for checking symlinks fast and easy![requires busybox 1.19.4 and up]
how to install
STEP1) download the attachment posted below-->chklnk.sh.pdf
STEP2)remove the extension name(and you can change the file name to whatever you'd like)(mine's chklnk.)
STEP3)put it in /bin, /sbin or /xbin(any folder that contains posix applets)
Or... you can install the script like this-->
Code:
$ ./chklnk.sh --install
42 hits.
would you like to install it in /usr/local/bin? (y/n)
please wait...
copying files...
================================================================================
install complete!
type chklnk to run the program!
STEP4)open terminal
how to use
(if you have done the "how to install" correctly,) open the terminal, and do this:
Code:
chklnk [some file you want to check]
how to self-troubleshoot
if nothing shows up on terminal screen except "error code 1",
don't freak out and just do what i say:
Code:
chklnk --bbpass [your stuff]
if it still don't work, do:
Code:
chklnk --verbose [your stuff]
or do:
Code:
chklnk --verbose --bbpass [your stuff]
and paste the outcome right here.

for developers:
good luck with your projects:)
