NAME

copylink - replace a link with a copy of the linked file

SYNOPSIS

copylink [link ...]

DESCRIPTION

Each of the links on the command line is replaced by a copy of the file that the link points too, so the copy can be edited without changing the original.
The command is intended for modifying perl source files created by "./Configure -Dmksymlinks".
