in reply to rename files

Try:

rename("$number.gif","$numbers_replace.GIF")

Note the quotes. Does that do it?

    Probably not since, aside from not checking the return status from rename, the pathnames still aren't being adjusted relative to the base directory they passed opendir.

      The proof of this (probably accurate) issue could also be being hidden if '/temp_gif' is not a valid mountpoint -- it seems rather plausible, though not yet proven, that './temp_gif' is what was wanted.

        Erm, since they actually did remember to put error checking on the opendir call that would catch that case.
