Hello all,

When we create a soft link, we can easily identify the link file
ex:
lrwxr-xr-x 1 govinds govinds 1 Jun 17 13:37 b -> a

but if we create a hard link, how to identify the link file from the original file.

in the following d is original e is link file. i could nt see any difference

-rw-r--r-- 2 govinds staff 0 Jun 17 13:39 d
-rw-r--r-- 2 govinds staff 0 Jun 17 13:39 e
