So I want to symlink copy all the files and folders in one directory to another directory. When I use
cp -s though without the
-r option I get a bunch of "omitting directory" warnings, and I don't want to omit directories:
$ cp -s /home/my_username/path_to_directory/* . cp: omitting directory `/home/my_username/path_to_directory/foo' cp: omitting directory `/home/my_username/path_to_directory/bar' cp: omitting directory `/home/my_username/path_to_directory/baz'
If I use the
-r option though, it symlinks all the files in the directories instead of symlinking the directories themselves.
How do I non-recursively symlink all files and folders in one directory to another directory?
