ln -s path_from path_to

What is the difference between cp and ln although I have create link with ln command.

Secondly I want to view all the links created so what to do here?

issuing 'ls -l' should show you the link details

According to man -l is for long listing and -L for links but -L is not working in RH 7.2?
