    I tried but get error message for this code:
    foreach $folder (@iqfolder_arr) { print("Printing from inside the last foreach but before rmdir: $fol +der\n"); $ftp_disco->rmtree(['/ep005/egate/client/iq/$folder'], 1, 1) || die + "Error: @{[ $ftp_disco->message ]}\n"; }

    Can't locate object method "rmtree" via package "Net::FTP" (perhaps you forgot t o load "Net::FTP"?) at C:/Perl/eg/data/ line 86.

    so I also tried:
    foreach $folder (@iqfolder_arr) { print("Printing from inside the last foreach but before rmdir: $fol +der\n"); rmtree(['/ep005/egate/client/iq/$folder'], 1, 1) || die "Error: @{[ + $ftp_disco->message ]}\n"; }

    but got this error: Error: Opening data connection for .. Transfer complete.
      you need  use File::Path; in front of your script to import the function rmtree. but sure this will not work with ftp. It looks you try with Net::Ftp ftp is not telent. Within ftp try rmdir.
      $ftp->rmdir('your_directory', 1);
      but it is untested.
        I was trying that previously but it did not work. Maybe b/c of the way these IQs are named?
        I tried a couple of different Modules and methods. I will try rmdir.

[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
