-o or --ignore-owner

-M or --minimize
Among equal files, keep the file with the lowest link count.
-O or --keep-oldest
Among equal files, keep the oldest file (least recent modification time). By

-x or --exclude
A regular expression which excludes files from being compared and linked.
-i or --include

option re-includes files which would otherwise be excluded. If the option is used
without --exclude, only files matched by the pattern are included.
-s or --nimum-size
The minimum size to consider. By default this is 1, so empty files will not be
linked. An optional suffix of K,M,G,T may be provided, indicating that the file
size is KiB,MiB,GiB,TiB.
hardlink takes one or more directories which will be searched for files to be linked.
