lndir vs. soft links and aliases
Authored by: jzsimon on Dec 16, '03 09:42:35AM

It looks to me like lndir is recursive. Also, it makes soft links only to files but makes new true directories in the shadow directory.

That explains why the shadow applications don't have an alias icon: the .app directory is real; only the files within are links.
