Mknod - Perl extension for the mknod(2) call
# create a pipe
# or a device
mknod('ttyS0', S_IFCHR|0644, 4|64);
It seemed to me this system call wasnt available to perl yet.
If I was just looking in the wrong place, please let me know:)
Returns 1 on ok and 0 on failure.
This behaviour can be prevented:
use Mknod ();
