• Unix Soft links are pointers to programs, files, or directories located elsewhere (just like Windows shortcuts)
• If the original program, file, or directory is renamed, moved, or deleted, the soft link is broken and it will show in red color if you using ls -lrt --color option.
• If you type ls -F you can see which files are UNIX soft links because they end with @
• To create a soft link called "current" that points to a file or directory called "new_package", use this: ln -s new_package latest to remember this command always remember that name of soft link comes as last argument.
