       texlinks - maintain symbolic links from format to engine


       texlinks [ OPTIONS... ]  DIRECTORIES...


       texlinks is used to create or recreate symbolic links from formats to engines according to
       the information in fmtutil.cnf or a file specified with --cnffile.

       DIRECTORIES is an optional list of directories in which to operate.  If no directories are
       specified the list of directories depends on the --multiplatform option.


       --cnffile FILE or -f FILE
              use file as configuration file (default: fmtutil.cnf)

       --help or -h
              show some help text

       --multiplatform or -m
              operate  in  all  platform-specific  directories  (default:  operate  only  in  the
              directory for this platform)

       --silent or -s
              silently skip over existing scripts/binaries instead of printing a warning

       --unlink or -u
              Unlink previously created symlinks

       --verbose or -v
              +set verbose mode on (default: off)


              default configuration file


       fmtutil(1), fmtutil.cnf(5)
