Default Chapter 3 command?

I was trying to experiment with the "ln -i" command to view a file's inode number but it doesn't seem to be correct. I know the "ls" command can be invoked with the "-i" option to see the inode number but the "ln" command doesn't seem to make sense in this case. Not to mention the coreutils manpage doesn't give any help as to the "ln -i" option.

(paragraph 6 page 94 is where the command in question is used, "You can see the inode number for a file by using ln -i")

Thanks
Joe

Nah, ln makes a link. Its probably a misprint of ls
