Make a symlink in linux or Mac OS X

This is more of a snippet than a post.

This answer, at AskDifferent, by user grgarside, explains symlink syntax perfectly.

┌── ln(1) link, ln -- make links
│   ┌── Create a symbolic link.
│   │                         ┌── the path to the intended symlink
│   │                         │   can use . or ~ or other relative paths
│   │                   ┌─────┴────────┐
ln -s /path/to/original /path/to/symlink
      └───────┬───────┘
              └── the path to the original file/folder
                  can use . or ~ or other relative paths
