NAME
       ln  -  make a link

SYNOPSIS
       ln name1 [ name2 ]

DESCRIPTION
       A  link	is  a directory entry referring to a file; the same file (together with its size,
       all its protection information, etc.)  may have several links to it.  There is no  way  to
       distinguish  a  link  to a file from its original directory entry; any changes in the file
       are effective independently of the name by which the file is known.

       Ln creates a link to an existing file name1.  If name2 is given, the link has  that  name;
       otherwise  it  is  placed  in  the current directory and its name is the last component of
       name1.

       It is forbidden to link to a directory or to link across file systems.
