Sorry, this is probably a stupid question ...

... but I don't get your meaning here:

"... Once installed, there are two ways to use ccache ... Alternatively, you can create a symbolic link to ccache from the names of your compilers, which allows you to use ccache without any changes to your build system. Make sure that the symlink appears in your PATH before the actual compiler."

Could you give an example, i.e. show the directory where you create the link and also print the ln-command(s)? (I italicized your text where my problem to understand arises).

Code:
cp ccache /usr/local/bin/
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/gcc
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/g++
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/cc
ccache man page
