in reply to Trouble with a string

Assuming your post's whitespace has not been mangled (you should wrap output in <code> tags to avoid that), your issue is that the results from the external call ends with a newline character. This is easily fixed with chomp:

$OLDVMDIR = "/sunstorage_kvm_images/kvm_images/images"; #Current Dire +ctory $NEWVMDIR = "/sunstorage_kvm_images/kvm_images/images_new"; #Target ( +New) Directory $VMSFX = "\-vda\.img"; #File suffix for each file <snip> @VMSHUT = `cat /tmp/virshlist_shutdown`; chomp(@VMSHUT); foreach $VMSHUT (@VMSHUT) { $VMFILE = $OLDVMDIR . $VMSHUT . $VMSFX; print "$VMFILE $NEWVMDIR \n"; }

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.
