Hi smunro16,

I presume that your question is on how to get the path to the scripts.

You have two ways to get it. The first is using $0, that will give you the path to the current perl script, se second is using use Find::Bin.

If you choose to use $0:

my $path=$0; $path=~s/[^/]+$//;


$path will now have the path to the directory where your perl script is.

Note, however, that if you chdir inside you perl script $0 may not be a valid path to you perl script, once it may be relative to you initial path.

To know more about this you may want to read the thread How do I get the full path to the script executing?.
