I've never heard of it DELETING files, but I have heard of it changing permissions, and occasionally failing (eg, if there files/folders with spaces in the name). Anyhow, removing a symlink is just like removing a file (with rm). You can restore the symlink later, if necessary, using 'ln -s' man 1 rm man 1 ln -- Adam <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
