in reply to Filename Partial Match function

Why do you copy your file and then move it? It would be simpler to just copy it directly to the right destination. By the way, File::Copy provides both a copy and a move function.

The fact that you had to copy and paste the same code 4 times should have been a good clue that you could have done it better. And if you are just going to use index to know if a string is included in the other, a regex could do the trick, with case insensitivity made easy.

use strict; use File::Copy; use warning; system("clear"); system("mount /dev/cd0 /mnt"); system("cp /mnt/* /usr/castle/pctemp/."); system("umount /mnt"); my %dest = (SO_PC => 'PCMAP.BIN', MS_PC => 'FULLPC.BIN', SO_CV => 'CVFULLPC.BIN', MS_MC => 'MBFULLPC.BIN'); print "\n" x 5, "Input required:\n"; my $fileName = <STDIN>; chomp $fileName; for my $search (keys %dest) { die "$fileName does not exist!" unless -e $fileName; copy ($fileName, '/usr/castle/np_new/'.$dest{$search}) if $fileName + =~ /\Q$search/i; }
