The directory structure of Mac and Linux(both are UNIX) tends to get really _really_ long. But don’t worry, by using the
ln -s, or Symbolic Link command in the terminal(unix shell), creating “shortcuts” to your folders or files is now a breeze.
ln -sHere’s an example:
ln -s /Library/Python/2.5/ /shortcuts/PYTHON
cd /shortcuts/PYTHON is now the same as
cd /Library/Python/2.5/, removing a shortcut is similar to removing a file:
rm /shortcuts/PYTHON… that’s it!
