in thread about link()

Thank you very much! This explains everything. So I tried with this code :
open O, ">a.bin"; binmode O; print O "Hello World!"; close O; link "a.bin", "b.bin"; open L, ">b.bin"; binmode L; print L "Bye World!"; close L; open O, "a.bin"; print while ( <O> ); close O; # prints "Bye World!"
This proved an in-place edit works in binary files as expected. It's glad to know that it's my fault!! Otherwise I don't know how to fix it. Good day! =)
