ln – make links between files


ln [options...] {target...} [link_name]


Create a link to the specified TARGET with optional LINK_NAME. If LINK_NAME is omitted, a link with the same basename as the TARGET is created in the current directory. When using the second form with more than one TARGET, the last argument must be a directory; create links in DIRECTORY to each TARGET. Create hard links by default, symbolic links with –symbolic. When creating hard links, each TARGET must exist.

-i, --interactive
 prompt whether to remove destinations
-f, --force remove existing destination files
-s, --symbolic make symbolic links instead of hard links
