I can never remember the right argument order when creating symlinks. Does the link go on the left… or… wait… the right? It’s annoying to keep looking this up, so today I forced myself to think of a way to remember it. I ended up settling on the “Left Side, Strong Side” line from Remember The Titans. Obviously the real thing is stronger than the link, so that goes on the left:
ln -s real_file name_of_link
Will this help you remember your symlink argument order?
