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. TEST COVERAGE
