Description:
------------
Most people are using forward slashs, even on Windows. But there is a problem with symlink().

As you can see in the example, the symlink is created as given in the code. Of course, many programs can't work with slashs, e.g. cmd.exe internal functions. The symlink data it read by programs "as is", in this case "./foo.php". And a "/" is not working in cmd.exe (or other programs).

Thus it would be nice, if symlink() on Windows is changing "/" itself to "\".



Test script:
---------------
In the shell:
php -r "symlink('./foo.php', 'bar.php');"
dir bar.php
type bar.php


Expected result:
----------------
28.02.2011  17:49    <SYMLINK>      bar.php [.\test.php]
Content of test.php

Actual result:
--------------
28.02.2011  17:49    <SYMLINK>      bar.php [./test.php]
File not found.
