I don't think that's what the OP is asking for. SLK is not a symbolic link, it is called the symbolic link exchange format. It is an alternative to store Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

I don't think there is a free library currently available to handle that file format yet. The best bet is to use Win32::API and reverse engineer the dynamic link libraries supplied by Excel.
