Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command.

The ln command is used to create a link between an existing file and a destination, typically newley created, file. Some operating systems may all this creating a shortcut. Recall that Linux treats everything like a file, thus you can create links to files, directories, or even devices.

There are two types of links:

Hard Links: A hard like is a connection where two files share the same inode.
Symbolic Links: A symblic link is a special file that refers to a different file.
