in reply to problem with Archive::Zip

I'd recommend more defensive programming, as follows:

my $zip = Archive::Zip->new() or croak "Failed to create a new archive"; $zip->addFile($renamed_file)->desiredCompressionLevel(0) or croak "Failed to add $renamed_file) to archive"; if( $zip->writeToFileNamed($zip_filename) != AZ_OK ) { croak "Failed to write to archive: $!"; } print "Added $renamed_file to $zip_filename\n";

I've merely copied your use of $! in the last croak; I'm not sure if that ever gets populated by Archive::Zip.
