in reply to Correct way to use system()?

You're problem has nothing to do with system. The problem is in these lines.

my $dir = @dirs_sunflarebeam; #print "$dirs\n"; system("getfacl", "$dir");

$dir contains the count of the items in @dirs_sunflarebeam, not the first item. The call to getfacl can't find a file named 1. You probably meant my $dir = $dirs_sunflare_beam[0];

One minor nit: You don't need the quotes around $dir in the last statement. They really have no effect.

Update: formatting correction.

    I found it. I had an array # that I didn't want. Thanks for your help. I remove the "" as well.
