in reply to Replication of directory subtrees

I hate to offer a non-perlish solution, but have you ever considered using xcopy? It would seem like you are on a win32ish system... and xcopy is exactly what this was designed for.

All that being said, if you need this to be cross platform, you are *way* better off with some of the other monks answers :)

    Yes, It is going to be subroutine within a CGI application that should run both under MsWin32 and Unix.
    Thanks.
      well, in that case!
      if ($^O =~ /win32/i) { # do stuff with xcopy } else { # do stuff with cp -r }
      I am *not* advocating this solution... I just thought it would be cheesy way to do it. Please, for the love of anything you may or may not hold holy, use something like File::Find or File::NCopy instead like merlyn suggested.
