Python os.symlink() Method with example

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another section of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Os symlink() method.

The Python os symlink() method creates a symbolic link dst which points to src.


The following below is the syntax for Python Os symlink() method -

os.symlink(src, dst)

Parameter Details

  • src - This is the source.
  • dst - This is the destination, which didn't exist previously.

Return Value

It does not return any value.


The following below is a simple example -


import os

src = '/usr/bin/python'
dst = '/tmp/python'

# This creates a symbolic link on python in tmp directory
os.symlink(src, dst)

print "symlink created"

Let us compile and run the above program, this creates a symbolic link in /tmp directory which will be as follows -

Irwxrwxrwx. 1 root   root
