Examples of using the ln command

To link a directory into your current directory:

   ln -s $HOME/accounts/may

This links the directory $HOME/accounts/may into your current working directory. This link will have the same name may as the directory it points to.

To link several directories into a subdirectory:

   ln -s $HOME/hyperhelp $HOME/metacard experimental

This links the directories $HOME/hyperhelp and $HOME/metacard into the subdirectory experimental.
