Use the create alias command to create a second icon for a file or folder, in a location that is handier for the user.

Parameters:

The aliasPath specifies the name and location of the alias to be created. If you specify a name but not a location, the alias is created in the defaultFolder.

The originalFilePath/originalFolderPath is the name and location of the file/folder you want to make an alias to. If you specify a name but not a location, Revolution assumes the file is in the defaultFolder.

Comments:

You cannot create an alias to a disk volume.

To find out which file an alias refers to, use the aliasReference function.

Important! When creating an alias on Windows systems, make sure the alias's name ends with the extension ".lnk" to ensure that it behaves properly when the user double-clicks it.
