Linux Commands: Make a new name for a file


symlink-Linux Command

symlink command- Make a new name for a file
Syntax: #include 
 
       int symlink(const char *NewPath, const char *OldPath);

Description: The symbolic link is particularly interesting for beginning users: they are fairly obvious to see and you don't need to worry about partitions.
The command to make links is ln. In order to create symlinks, you need to use the -s option:
ln -s targetfile linkname

symbolic link (or for short: symlink): a small file that is a pointer to another file. A symbolic link contains the path to the target file instead of a physical location on the hard disk. Since inodes are not used in this system, soft links can span across partitions.
