Could someone please briefly describe the reactions to the following actions? Sometimes I delete the original directories by deleting links, and hopefully someone can give me some insight.
# ln -s /home/steve/directory /tmp/directory # rm /tmp/directory In testing, the original directory (/home/steve/directory) did not get removed, but in reality, I am dealing with my X11R6 directory which had to be moved temporarily to make room for a port install. # ln -s /usr/X11R6 /home/steve/X11R6 Which put a new link from the original to the new location. If I # rm /home/steve/X11R6, will I be safe as to not delete the original directory? If this is true, what could I have done in the past that would of seen an entire directory structure deleted by deleting the link? Tks for your input.
