Symlink-style package management tool

'reflect' was a symlink-style package management tool similar to depot, stow, graft, epkg, etc. However, reflect had far fewer prerequisites and required only bash and coreutils. Configuration was per-package, and multiple target directories were permitted.


Reflect has been decommissioned. This page remains for the sake of history.
