Create symbolic links in the Finder via AppleScript
Authored by: mistersquid on Dec 01, '06 05:51:44PM

jonn8n,

Test driving the prompt branch of your script, I was excited for a second that one might be able to select multiple files in the prompt and thereby have batch file functionality.

How hard is such a thing to code and/or anyone out there willing to chuck it in?

I really have a thing for making symbolic links in the GUI.

Create symbolic links in the Finder via AppleScript

The script will only use one file if you run it by double-clicking in the Finder (or launching it some other way such as opening from the Scripts menu). However, if you drag and drop items on to its icon in the Finder, then it will iterate through all of the items and make the symbolic links for each item.
