@rick_777 @volt4ire I used the mnemonic that "Target" comes first and Target is the name of that store that got hacked a few years ago

@volt4ire just remember that it's like the semantics of cp!

cp src dst
ln -s src dst

(but yeah i feel you.)

@volt4ire All you (and by you I mean whoever, I'm sure _you_ have a solid grasp on them πŸ˜‰) have to remember, is that the thing you're linking to is mandatory, so it always comes first. The name/location, that's optional, so it comes second.

cd ~/
ln -s /foo/bar

is the same as

ln -s /foo/bar ~/bar

Now which you call src and which you call dst, I can't help you there πŸ˜€

Is it "cp target source" or "cp source target"?
ln works exactly like cp, so if you don't have trouble there, ln should be easy as well.

The man page calls the parameters "target" and "link name" respectively. Using those semantics helps me a lot.
