       sln - create symbolic links

       sln source dest
       sln filelist

       The  sln	 program creates symbolic links.  Unlike the ln(1) program, it
       is statically linked.  This means that if for some reason  the  dynamic
       linker  is  not	working,  sln  can  be	used to make symbolic links to
       dynamic libraries.

       The command line has two forms.	In the first form, it creates dest  as
       a new symbolic link to source.

       In  the	second	form,  filelist	 is a list of space-separated pathname
       pairs, and the effect is as if sln was executed once for each  line  of
       the file, with the two pathnames as the arguments.

       The sln program supports no command-line options.
