linkinfo -- Gets information about a link


int linkinfo (string path)

linkinfo() returns the st_dev field of the UNIX C stat structure returned by the lstat system call. This function is used to verify if a link (pointed to by path) really exists (using the same method as the S_ISLNK macro defined in stat.h). Returns 0 or FALSE in case of error.

See also symlink(), link(), and readlink().

Note: This function is not implemented on Windows platforms.
