I've given this a couple attempts.I'm really trying to read over the notes but am just plain lost. This is the error I got with the code:

"my" variable $dir_path masks earlier declaration in same statement at line 5. syntax error at line 5, near "opendir" Can't use global $! in "my" at line 5, near "die $!" syntax error at line 7, near ") {" Global symbol "$file_content" requires explicit package name at line 8. Execution of aborted due to compilation errors.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $dir_path="c:/incoming/temp;" opendir my $DIR, $dir_path or die $!; open my $OUT, '>>', 'c:/vehicles.txt' or die $!; while (my $file_name = readdir($DIR) {print "$file_name\n";} print MYFILE $file_content; close (MYFILE)
