Symlinks, amirite?

My trick is to remember it like this: ln -s $real $fake.

One reply on “Symlinks, amirite?”

The way to remember this is you can leave out one argument.

ln -s /foo/bar

Creates a link from there to here (current directory) under the same name. So if you want a different dest name, add an argument

ln -s /foo/bar here
