One way to help back up personalized system files
Authored by: dhosek on Mar 30, '07 05:08:54PM

There's no reason to use hard links. Symbolic links work just as well and don't have the difficulty. Just do ln -s rather than ln. It's become kind of second-nature for me to type ln-s whenever I create a link. It shows up in the finder as if it's a linked file (which it is). Note that finder links are not symbolic links and can't be treated as if they're the same file from the shell or low-level commands.
