I have this snippit of code:
use File::DosGlob qw(glob);
copy($_,'Z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'E:/EudoraPro/*.mbx';
printf ("Mailboxes done!\n");
copy($_,'Z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'E:/EudoraPro/*.toc';
printf ("TOC's done!\n");
Some of it I picked up elsewhere some of it is my own. What I wanted it to do was to copy all the *.mbx and *.toc files to a network share for backup purposes and then to tell me it completed that task. The copying works fine, but I never see the "Mailboxes are done" and TOC's are done" messages.
I'm using Activestate Perl v5.6.1 build 633 on a Windows 98 machine.
