integer li_rc
oleobject loo_Fac
string ls_Target
string ls_Symlink
integer li_Success

// Chilkat supports symbolic links on both Windows and non-Windows operating systems.
// Note: On Windows, symbolic links and Windows shortcuts are two different things.
// On the Windows operating system, a process requires a special privilege to create
// a symbolic link (unless running as administrator).  

loo_Fac = create oleobject
li_rc = loo_Fac.ConnectToNewObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.FileAccess")
if li_rc < 0 then
    destroy loo_Fac
    MessageBox("Error","Connecting to COM object failed")
    return
end if

// Here we create a symbolic link to point to qa_data/hamlet.xml
// 
ls_Target = "qa_data/hamlet.xml"
ls_Symlink = "qa_output/symlink_hamlet.xml"
li_Success = loo_Fac.SymlinkCreate(ls_Target,ls_Symlink)
if li_Success <> 1 then
    Write-Debug loo_Fac.LastErrorText
    destroy loo_Fac
    return
end if

// Here we create a directory symbolic link.  The target is a directory (not a regular file)
ls_Target = "qa_data/xml/"
ls_Symlink = "qa_output/xml_dir"
li_Success = loo_Fac.SymlinkCreate(ls_Target,ls_Symlink)
if li_Success <> 1 then
    Write-Debug loo_Fac.LastErrorText
    destroy loo_Fac
    return
end if

Write-Debug "Success."
