File::Copy::Link - extension for replacing a link by a copy of the linked file
use File::Copy::Link; copylink 'file.lnk'; use File::Copy::Link qw(safecopylink); safecopylink 'file.lnk';
- reads the filename linked to by the argument and replaced the link with a copy of the file. It opens a filehandle to read from the link, deletes the link, and then copies the filehandle back to the link.
- does the same as "copylink" but without the open-and-delete manouvre. Instead, it uses "File::Spec::Link" to find the target of the link and copies from there.
This module is mostly a wrapper round "File::Spec::Link::linked" and "File::Copy::copy", the functionality is available in a command line script copylink.
Nothing by default, can export "copylink", `"safecopylink".
