in reply to File::Copy or system

If you are fond of the cp command and still want to avail yourself of the nice extras provided by File::Copy, just do use File::Copy qw/cp/; at the start of your program and the cp function is imported into your namespace.

With Perl, you can can have your cake and eat it!

A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
