ubln – links one UNIBASE table to another
ubln table 1 [table2…]target
ubln link a UNIBASE table (“.dat” and “.key”files) to a target name, table1 and target can not be the same.
If target is not a directory, then only one table may be specified before it. ubln links “.dat” and “.key” of table1 to “.dat” and “.key” of target. If “.dat” and “.key” of target exists and its mode forbids writing, the mode is printed and the user is asked for a response. If the response begins with a ‘y'(and the user is permitted) then the link occurs.
If the target is a directory then the specified “.dat” and “.key” of table1 are linked to that directory. That is,”.dat” and “.key” files with the same names are created in the directory linked to the specified “.dat” and “.key” files.
