- Linux allows creating a file, which is actually a link to another
file (or directory).
- Such a file is called "symbolic link".
- Symbolic links can be used for:
- Creating a short-cut for a file with a long path.
- giving a program the impression that it can find a file in one location,
even if the file is found in a different location.
- Amaze your friends or bewilder them.
