 NAME
      create link - Creates a soft link and optionally specifies an
      expiration time and an extension time

 SYNOPSIS
      cdscp create link link-name CDS_LinkTarget = target-name
      [CDS_LinkTimeout =  (expiration-time extension-time)]

 ARGUMENTS
      link-name The full name of the soft link.

      target-name
		The full name of the entry to which the soft link points.

      expiration-time
		A date and time after which CDS checks for existence of the
		soft link's target and either extends or deletes the soft
		link.  The value is specified as yyyy-mm-dd-hh:mm:ss (year-
		month-day-hour:minute:second). You can abbreviate this
		value.

      extension-time
		A period of time by which to extend the soft link's

		still exists).	The value is specified as ddd-hh:mm:ss
		(days-hour:minute:second). You can abbreviate ths value.


 DESCRIPTION
      The create link command creates a soft link. If you specify the
      CDS_LinkTimeout attribute, you must specify an expiration time and an
      extension time.  If you omit the CDS_LinkTimeout attribute, the soft
      link is permanent and must be explicitly deleted.

    Privilege Required
      You must have insert permission to the directory in which you intend
      to create the soft link.

 NOTE
      This command is replaced at Revision 1.1 by the dcecp command and may
      not be provided in future releases of DCE.

 EXAMPLE
      The following command creates a permanent soft link named
      /.:/sales/tokyo/price-server that points to an object entry named
      /.:/sales/east/price-server.  The expiration value indicates that CDS
      will check that the destination name /.:/sales/east/price-server still
      exists on June 25,1995, at 12:00 p.m.  If the destination name still
      exists, the soft link remains in effect another 90 days.	Thereafter,
      CDS will check that the destination name exists every 90 days.
