Creating Symbolic Links in Linux

In Linux, you can create a symbolic link using the “ln” command with the “-s” option to specify it as a symbolic link.

The syntax is as follows:

ln -s [target file or directory] [link name]


ln -s /path/to/original/file /path/to/link

This will create a symbolic link named “link” in the “/path/to/” directory that points to the “/path/to/original/file”.
