islink(path) -> Bool

Returns true if path is a symbolic link, false otherwise.


julia> islink("/path/to/symlink")

This example checks if the provided path "/path/to/symlink" is a symbolic link and returns true.

julia> islink("/path/to/file")

In this example, the function returns false because "/path/to/file" is not a symbolic link.

Common mistake example:

julia> islink("nonexistent/file")
ERROR: SystemError: no such file or directory (ENOENT)

The error above occurs when the specified path does not exist. Ensure that the path exists before using the islink function to avoid such errors.
