void createSync(String target, {bool recursive: false})

Synchronously create the link. Calling createSync on an existing link will throw an exception.

If recursive is false, the default, the link is created only if all directories in its path exist. If recursive is true, all non-existing path components are created. The directories in the path of target are not affected, unless they are also in path.

On the Windows platform, this will only work with directories, and the target directory must exist. The link will be created as a Junction. Only absolute links will be created, and relative paths to the target will be converted to absolute paths.

On other platforms, the posix symlink() call is used to make a symbolic link containing the string target. If target is a relative path, it will be interpreted relative to the directory containing the link.
