1a Can I create a symlink from Perl or do I have to spawn to the os?
1b What's the most efficient way to do this?
1c If I have to shell to do this, can you give me an example, including a method of determining whether the command was successful (from within the Perl parent)?
1d If I wanted to create multiple symlinks, what would be the most efficient way to do this in one pass? (as opposed to doing x number of shells, maybe create a script with the commands and then execute it all at once, but I'd need to know if any of the commands in the script failed).
2. The same thing but with deleting a file.
