    Hi Nathan,

    Thank you very much for your tutorial which helped me understand CMake. In my project I would like to link two files of diffrent Directories so than changing one would change another. Can you pl suggest me the command syntax with an example.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey again Arjun,

    I answered your previous question regarding CMake, but with this it sounds like what you’re trying to do is create a link between files. This is a shell specific question, whether you want to make a soft or a hard link depends on what you’re interested in and the file system your dealing with. A hardlink is the equivalent of a reference variable, you change one it changes the other, while a soft link is more like a pointer. However, which one you should use depends on more than each links functionality, for example, hard links typically will not work across file systems.

    Good luck
