in reply to change files names bug

Does sample_ACCTGG.fq exist when the attempt to rename is made? Try
if ( -e $file ) { rename ($file, $new) or die "Can not change $file to $new, $!\n"; } else { print "$file isn't there to be renamed $new\n"; }

    The file exist and the scrip actually changes the name correctly, but I dont understand why, the scrip try to change the name again and of course, because it just changed the name of the file, the file does not exit any more. However the validation that you propose

     if ( -e $file )

    allows the script finish the job, thank you
