If $dir/$new already exists, you do not rename it. That's not what I think you want. What about this:

sub fixdir { my $dir = shift; opendir my $DH, $dir or die "Cannot open '$dir': $!"; while (my $f = readdir $DH) { next if grep $_ eq $f, qw/. ../; (my $new = $f) =~ s/[^a-zA-Z0-9_.]/_/g; if ($new ne $f) { $new .= '1' while -e "$dir/$new"; print STDERR "Renaming: $f -> $new\n"; rename "$dir/$f", "$dir/$new"; } fixdir("$dir/$new") if -d "$dir/$new"; } }
