How to create Symbolic link / symlink
« on: July 29, 2008, 10:13:08 AM »
Symbolic links are created with the ln command. It is same as shortcut option of windows.

ln -s real_file link_file

For example, if you want to create symlink in your /root called test.tmp to point to /tmp/test.tmp then you can create using following way:

ln -s test.tmp /tmp/test.tmp
