ln -s to make a link will make either a relative link (
link->../file) or an absolute link (
But sometimes I don't want to type the entire absolute path, but still need an absolute link. Maybe I want to link
link->../dir2/file but I really want
link->/home/user/dir/another dir/a third dir/dir6/dir2/long named dir/dir/dir2/file. That's a lot of typing.
What's an easier way to do that then this?
ln -s "/home/user/dir/another dir/a third dir/dir6/dir2/long named dir/dir/dir2/file" link
Thanks, my fingers appreciate it.
