Mknod - Perl extension for the mknod(2) call
use Mknod; # create a pipe mknod('hole', S_IFIFO|0644); # or a device mknod('ttyS0', S_IFCHR|0644, 4|64);
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.
mknod() S_IFREG S_IFIFO S_IFBLK S_IFCHR
This behaviour can be prevented: use Mknod (); Mknod::mknod(...)
