NAME

Mknod - Perl extension for the mknod(2) call

SYNOPSIS

  use Mknod;
  # create a pipe 
  mknod('hole', S_IFIFO|0644);
  # or a device
  mknod('ttyS0', S_IFCHR|0644, 4|64);

DESCRIPTION

  It seemed to me this system call wasnt available to perl yet.
  If I was just looking in the wrong place, please let me know:)

  Returns 1 on ok and 0 on failure.

EXPORT

  mknod()
  S_IFREG
  S_IFIFO

This behaviour can be prevented: use Mknod (); Mknod::mknod(...)
