NAME

PerlIO::via::symlink - PerlIO layers for create symlinks

SYNOPSIS

 open $fh, '>:via(symlink)', $fname;
 print $fh "link foobar";
 close $fh;

DESCRIPTION

The PerlIO layer symlink allows you to create a symbolic link by writing to the file handle.

You need to write C"link $name" to the file handle. If the format does not match, close will fail with EINVAL.
