It's hard to figure what you're asking. For one the ln command has nothing to do with the svn (Subversion) command. –  Christian.K Mar 5 '12 at 13:01

There are 3 common forms in which ln is used.

  • $ ln target link_name :create link to target with the link name “link_name” in current directory.
  • $ ln target :create link to target with the same link name.
  • $ ln target directory :create link to target (link name same) in the specified directory.
