DESCRIPTIONProvides a perl interface to the "lchown()" system call, on platforms that support it.
DEFAULT EXPORTSThe following symbols are exported be default:
- lchown (LIST)
Like the "chown" builtin, but using the "lchown()" system call so that
symlinks will not be followed. Returns the number of files successfully
On systems without the "lchown()" system call, "lchown" always returns "undef" and sets "errno" to "ENOSYS" (Function not implemented).
ADDITIONAL EXPORTSThe following symbols are available for export but are not exported by default:
- LCHOWN_AVAILABLE \fIs0()
- Returns true on platforms with the "lchown()" system call, and false on platforms without.
