Linux Symbolic Link Append Name

http://www.unix.com – Can someone help create a symbolic link where I append my own string to the name of the link? Here's the code that I have so far: Code: find /home/folder1/*.txt -type f -exec ln -s {} \; find /home/folder2/*.txt -type f -exec ln -s {} \; So that command works to create my symbolic link but I would like to append my own text to the link name because I could have the same file name in each folder and in the destination I need to find a way to give unique name to the symbolic link. So I was thinking of creating the sym links to look like this: Code: folder1_doc1.txt folder2_doc1.txt (HowTos)
