in reply to rename files

readdir is not my friend. If you use File::Find, you don't have to mess with relative vs. absolute pathnames. You can use $File::Find::name, which is a complete pathname. You don't have to worry about '..' and '.'. Etc. etc. Quite untested:

use File::Find; find(\&wanted, '/temp_gif'); sub wanted { return unless /^\d+\.gif$/i; (my $new_name = $File::Find::name) =~ s/(\d+)\.gif$/($1+398) . 'GIF'/ei; rename($File::Find::name, $new_name) or die $!; }
