I'm pleased to announce the initial release of Win32-junction-point
* hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/Win32-junction-point
* git repository: https://github.com/mikesteele81/Win32-junction-point
This package provides the ability to manipulate NTFS junction points as
supported by Windows 2000 and above. Junction points, along with NTFS hard
links and NTFS symbolic links, are a type of symbolic link that can be made
between folders existing on the same filesystem. Please read Microsoft
KB205524  for more information on junction points.
Junction points have always been left undocumented in the Win32 SDK. The
Windows 2000 Resource Kit came with a command-line utility named linkd.exe to
work with them. Later, Mark Russinovich of SysInternals distributed a
replacement utility named Junction  which accomplished the same thing.
This source code is based on an article  and C++ library  written by
Mike Nordell at codeproject.com.
It is against Microsoft's recommendation to make use of undocumented API
features. Use this library at your own risk.
