in reply to copying files through modules

I do not really understand most of your question, can you explain what you mean by "accept a module"?

If all you are trying to do is copy a file from one disk location to another, you could use the File::Copy module which is included in the Perl base distribution:

use File::Copy;
copy("file1","file2") or die "Copy failed: \$!";

 [Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open? [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window? [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history LanX damns the cult of CB ;-) LanX WTF WTF WTF [LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
