Symbolic Link: A link is a standin (or 'pointer) for a file that if accessed will point to the file it was setup to point at. A symbolic link is generally the better of the two (the other is hard link) because the link can be deleted without having to delete the file being pointed to (not true for hard links). A symbolic link is created like this:

  • ln -s xxx yyy

where xxx is the path and name of the link and yyy the path and name of the file being 'pointed' too.
