Can rclone get Dropbox share link?

Hello! I just learned about rclone the other day from some folks who were using dropbox_uploader.sh but have gotten frustrated with it.

So far I am really liking rclone and have started porting some of my scripts that use dropbox_uploader.sh to use rclone instead.

One feature that I use with dropbox_uploader.sh that I can't seem to find in rclone is that dropbox_uploader.sh can query Dropbox and return a "Share" URL, so if I have a file I want to share with someone, I do:

dropbox_uploader.sh share "/folder/names/to/foo.pdf"

and it will return a Dropbox link that I can use to share foo.pdf with people. I use this feature fairly frequently (a couple times each week, at least) and if I can do it with rclone all the better, but I haven't been able to suss out how to do that and googling around did not lead anywhere helpful.

Thanks for your time!

BAH!

Of course I found it as soon as I posted. In case anyone else wondered about this:

rclone link "dropbox:/folder/names/to/foo.pdf"
