Symbolic Links


I created a symbolic link using ln -s, now I want to remove this link. Is this possible.

Fedora 4.

Thanks again for your help.

Type the following (I believe this is correct)

Code:
rm /PATH/TO/SYMLINK
A symlink is really a file that points to another file. So if you delete the symlink you will not remove the "real" file. Hope this helps.
