ln



SYNOPSIS

       ln [OPTION]... TARGET [LINK_NAME]
       ln [OPTION]... TARGET... DIRECTORY
       ln [OPTION]... --target-directory=DIRECTORY TARGET...


DESCRIPTION

       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 direc­
       tory.  When using the second form with more than one  TAR­
       GET,  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.

       Mandatory arguments to  long  options  are  mandatory  for
       short options too.

       --backup[=CONTROL]
              make a backup of each existing destination file

       -d, -F, --directory

       -f, --force

       -n, --no-dereference
              treat  destination that is a symlink to a directory
              as if it were a normal file

       -i, --interactive
              prompt whether to remove destinations

       -s, --symbolic
              make symbolic links instead of hard links

       -S, --suffix=SUFFIX
              override the usual backup suffix

       --target-directory=DIRECTORY
              specify the DIRECTORY in which to create the links

       -v, --verbose
              print name of each file before linking

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit
              wise

       simple, never
