Is there a way to index symbolic links in ext3? For example, I want to keep track of all symbolic links on the filesystem (soft mainly). I think I would have to write a wrapper around ln to keep it in a database, but I was wondering if anyone has done something similar to this.
How about find [mount point] -type l -x -print Wrapping ln won't do the job completely as (a) it won't track the links being removed (e.g. via rm), and (b) it won't track links being created by programs other than ln which use the library or the system call directly. When you say "mainly soft", remember EVERY file /is/ a hard link. Just some files have more than one. Look at the "-links" option to find, which is easy enough for normal files though you will have to do a bit of thinking re hard linked directories, "." and "..".
