4.8.2 link expressions

A link expression is:

  1. an identifier of type link
  2. a string describing the link

A link is described by a string which consists of two parts: a property string followed by a name string. The property string describes the type of the link (ASCII, ssi or DBM) and the mode of the link (e.g., open for read, write or append). The name string describes the filename of the link, resp. a network connection for ssi links.

For a detailed format description of the link describing string see:
