Soft Link


Hello everyone!
I wonder if you can help me with the following:
If you have the following directory and subdirectories,
UDIR1 ---MAIN DIRECTORY
under UDIR1 there is two subdirectories: UDIR11 AND UDIR12
under UDIR11 there is a subdirectory: UDIR111
under UDIR12 there are two subdirectories: UDIR121 and UDIR122
Given the above scenario:
1- How to create a soft link of the directory UDIR111 under the directory UDIR12, and then how do you name the soft link UDIR111-sl

Thanks so muchhhhhhhhhh to anyone who can help!!

Regards,
Carlos

Yes TenTenths, is an exercise. I'm taking the Linux exam in 3 months, and It's kind of confusing sometimes. Where can I find the best book to study, if you don't mind telling me.

Pick your favorite search engine, set up a Linux VM, read man pages, and practice.
