replaced with std::os::unix::fs::symlink and std::os::windows::fs::{symlink_file, symlink_dir}

Expand description

Creates a new symbolic link on the filesystem.

The link path will be a symbolic link pointing to the original path. On Windows, this will be a file symlink, not a directory symlink; for this reason, the platform-specific std::os::unix::fs::symlink and std::os::windows::fs::symlink_file or symlink_dir should be used instead to make the intent explicit.
