mythlink.pl is a script in the contrib folder for renaming mythtv recordings to more human-readable filenames. Usage is exactly like mythrename.pl, except it supports --chanid and --starttime or --filename to specify that it should only create a link for a specific recording. The file was moved at mythtv revision 23475 due to the destructive nature of the script when used with default options (see here).
