       hardlink - Link multiple copies of a file


       hardlink [option]...  [directory]...


       hardlink is a tool which replaces copies of a file with hardlinks, therefore saving space.


       -h or --help
              print quick usage details to the screen.

       -v or --verbose
              More  verbose  output.  If  specified  once, every hardlinked file is displayed, if
              specified twice, it also shows every comparison.

       -n or --dry-run
              Do not act, just print what would happen

       -f or --respect-name
              Only try to link files with the same (basename).

       -p or --ignore-mode
              Link/compare  files  even  if  their  mode  is  different.  This  may  be   a   bit

       -o or --ignore-owner
              Link/compare  files  even  if  their owner (user and group) is different. It is not

       -t or --ignore-time
              Link/compare files even if their time  of  modification  is  different.  This  will
              retain the newest timestamp, unless -m or -M is given.

       -m or --maximize
              Try to maximize the link count of the files.

       -M or --minimize
              Try to minimize the link count of the files.

       -x or --exclude
              A regular expression which excludes files from being compared and linked.

       -i or --include
              A regular expression to include files. If the option --exclude has been given, this
              option re-includes files which would otherwise be excluded. If the option  is  used
              without --exclude, only files matched by the pattern are included.


       hardlink takes one or more directories which will be searched for files to be linked.
