I know that ln is used to create symlinks. I did not question that aspect of the command.
The question that I posed is if in fact the second argument to the command, specifically "_" is correct. I Also stated that
this command, unlike every other command up to this point in the book that is new, is not documented in the Command
Explinations section. So even if I "man ln" it doesn't tell my why this command is used in this particular manner in this
particular instance.
