Thank you very much. Im still a little green on hashes and wasnt sure if it would work in this situation without introducing yet another loop.

I had the two print statements to show that it prints fine from within the if statement. (it gives me the three directories like it should)
if ($fsline =~ /(.:\\.*)/){ $dir = $1; print "$dir\n"; #works fine here }
But if I print outside of the if statement I get the redundancies. And if there are then this command will repeat against the remote host multiple times for the same directory.

$badhost = "$logdir\\BADHOST.csv"; open (BADHOST,">>$badhost"); $dest = "$dir\\$file"; #will print redundancies here $dest =~ s/[\s]//g; $md5sumtmp = `rctrlx.exe $target /u "domain\\username" /p "password" / +c md5sum.exe /app md5sum.exe $dest`;

    I am having a little difficulty interpreting your question, so if this answer is off point I apologize. I think what is happening is that since you are accessing the $dir variable outside of the conditional loop, you are caching a value of $dir from a previous traverse of the loop. Perhaps this could be fixed with something along the lines of

    if ($fsline =~ /(.:\\.*)/){ $dir = $1; print "$dir\n"; #works fine here } else { next; }

      You interpreted my question perfectly, thank you. This fixes my problem. I had tried using next but not with the else. So close but so far away.

      Thanks very much for your help and fast response.
