Symbolic Link In Linux

Creating a symbolic link in linux is pretty straight forward. I created a link to port my videos to the new site with a single command:

ln -s /usr/src/test /usr/src/linux/test

    The purpose of ln -s is to create a soft link (or symbolic link) that points to another file. This is like a Windows shortcut only much better. It does not create any additional data, but simply a reference in the FAT.

    Often used with libraries and configuration files.
