]LINK.Import <ns> <dir> [-overwrite] [-flatten] [-fastload]

msg ← {opts} ⎕SE.Link.Import (ns dir)

This function takes the same arguments as Link.Create, but loads a directory containing source files into a namespace without creating an active link.

If source is a directory, then its contents are imported into the destination namespace.

If source is a single file, then the corresponding APL name is created in the destination namespace.


  • ns: namespace
  • dir: directory or file name


  • overwrite: Allow overwriting APL names in the destination namespace
  • other options have same effect as in Link.Create


  • String describing the imported destination and source, along with possible failures
