NAME

ln - create links

SYNOPSIS

ln [-sf] source_file [target_file | [source_files ... target_directory]]

DESCRIPTION

ln creates hard or symbolic links between files. If more than one argument is given, and the last argument is a directory, links will be created in this directory; their names will consist of the last components of the source files. If only one argument is given, the link will be created in the current directory, and its name will consist of the last component of the source file.

OPTIONS

ln accepts the following options:

-s

Create symbolic links instead of hard links (the default).

-f

If the target is not a directory, try to remove any existing targets before creating the links. Failure of removing the target results in a warning and no futher attempt to make the link will be made.

ENVIRONMENT

The working of ln is not influenced by any environment variables.

PORTABILITY

ln will not do much on platforms that do not know the concept of links. ln -s will not do much on platforms that do know symbolic links.

BUGS

There are no known bugs in this implementation of ln.
