NAME

symlink - create a symbolic link to a file


SYNOPSIS

symlink OLDFILE,NEWFILE


DESCRIPTION

Creates a new filename symbolically linked to the old filename. Returns 1 for success, 0 otherwise. On systems that don't support symbolic links, produces a fatal error at run time. To check for that, use eval:

    $symlink_exists = (eval {symlink("","")};, $@ eq '');
