Are you tired of typing out long and wordy directories in Linux? Linux links can simplify your life by taking advantage of the ls command. You can make two types of links, a hardlink vs. a softlink. Softlinks are more common due to its flexibility.
To create a softlink, you need to issue the “ln -s filename linkname” command at the shell prompt.
To remove the softlink, simply issue the “rm linkname” command.
