Is a given file shortcut to some other file?

ShGetFileInfo is the API that helps in finding out whether a file is a shortcut to some other file.

Here is wrapper function…

[sourcecode language=’cpp’]bool IsShortcut( LPCTSTR lpctszPath_i )
{
SHFILEINFO shFileInfo = { 0 };
return (( SHGetFileInfo( lpctszPath_i,
0,
&shFileInfo,
sizeof( shFileInfo ),
SHGFI_ATTRIBUTES )) && ( shFileInfo.dwAttributes & SFGAO_LINK ) == SFGAO_LINK );
}// End IsShortcut[/sourcecode]

Cool isn’t it? 8)
