🤣 Too close to home, man...
@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 😉) 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.
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 😀
it's `ln -sv [target] [link-name]` :)
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.
