lstat

See the current Perl documentation for lstat.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


lstat - stat a symbolic link



lstat FILEHANDLE

lstat EXPR

lstat



Does the same thing as the stat() function (including setting the special _ filehandle) but stats a symbolic link instead of the file the symbolic link points to. If symbolic links are unimplemented on your system, a normal stat() is done.

If EXPR is omitted, stats $_.
