So, I’m partway through your book, and I want to check on hard links. When you say it creates another door to the same body of data, is that literally true? For example, if all I have in my ./Documents directory is 001.doc (size 512K), and I hard link as hardlink.doc then run ls, do I see A or B?
A) 001.doc 512K
B) 001.doc 512K
If it’s not B, I’m not sure what the point is, other than maybe not changing the timestamp.
