These are symbolic links.
If new video138 ~ video150 volumes are mounted, I have to make links v138~v150 of that.
Could you imagine a bash magic? (I tried to use brace expansion but couldn't make it work.)
It would be much better if the magic script can create the symlinks automatically, with detecting the volumes' mount.

Try a simple for loop

for Num in {138..150}; do
  ln -s "/home/files/video$Num" "v$Num"
done

With zsh:

autoload zmv
alias zln='zmv -L'
zln -s '/home/files/video(*)' 'v$1'

or

zln -s '/home/files/video(<138-150>)' 'v$1'

Otherwise, with zsh or recent versions of bash or ksh93 supporting {x..y}, you could do:

vln() for i do
  ln -s "/home/files/video$i" "v$i"
done

vln {138..150}

  • Is this working with bash?

  • @StephaneChazelas Oh right, I read too fast and completely missed the second part, sorry.
