     perllink — add and delete symlinks in the standard Perl installation

     perllink [-fnv] [-p prefix] action [packlist ...]

     perllink manages the symlinks that match the files listed in the given

     The perl configuration library defines the main directory trees contain‐
     ing the standard Perl installation in the following variables:


     The perl configuration library also defines the locations of scripts and
     manual pages in the following variables:

	   scriptdir	   man1dir
	   sitescript	   siteman1dir
	   vendorscript	   vendorman1dir

     For each file listed in the packlists that is in one of the script or
     manual page locations, a relative symbolic link to that file is added or
     deleted from prefix/bin and prefix/man/man1.

     If -p prefix is specified, then the script and manual page locations are
     recomputed relative to the given prefix instead of to perl's prefix, and
     the symlinks are managed under the given prefix instead.

     The options are as follows:

     action  This required option is either “add” or “delete” and determines
	     whether the managed symlinks are added or deleted.

     packlist ...
	     These are paths to packlists containing the files installed as
	     part of a module.	Each line of a packlist contains a path termi‐
	     nated by a newline.  If no packlists are specified, then the
	     packlist for Perl itself is used.

     -f, --force
	     Unlink any already existing files, permitting the new symlinks to
	     replace the existing ones.

     -n, --noaction
	     Do not actually make any changes to the files in prefix.

     -p prefix, --prefix=prefix
	     Manage the symlinks in prefix.  By default, perllink manages the
	     symlinks in the location referenced by the perl configuration
	     variable prefix.

     -v	     Be verbose.  Display on standard error the shell-equivalent com‐
	     mands that are being executed.
