in reply to problem with Archive::Zip

From Archive::Zip

If the name given does not represent a readable plain file or symbolic + link, undef will be returned
It looks as though $renamed_file is not "a readable plain file or symbolic link".

Try wrapping your code with this check to be sure:

if ( ( -r $renamed_file )&& ( ( -f $renamed_file ) || ( -l $renamed_fi +le ) ) ){ #add to zip } else{ print "$renamed_file is not a readable valid file id\n" }
print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
