Don't remember how to use
ln to create a symbolic link?
ln -s original link or
ln -s link original?
For commands like
mv, there is a clear concept of
DESTINATION. You copy/move the source to the destination.
ln, are you creating a link from or to the original?
Back in college, I had a friend who mentioned to me a simple way to remember, and I have never forgotten since then.
If you use
ln with only one argument, the original, it will automatically
create the link in your current working directory.
ln -s /path/to/original will create the link:
original -> /path/to/original
Thus, providing a second argument is simply giving the filename for the link.
ln -s original link
