    Now go to your linux prompt and type the following:

    mkdir mytest mkdir mytest

    You'll get the following error message:

    mkdir: cannot create directory mytest: File exists

    You can go ahead and rmdir that mytest directory now, and then ask yourself why you're trying to create a directory that already exists.


      no dav , actually no dir is been created , but i couldnt understand y its giving that sort of error , u can try the same script in ur desk , please let me know whether its creating dir r not

    The error message just tells You that the directory $somepath/output exists. Your variables $temp1, $temp2 seem to have been empty (see the trailing slashes in the error message).

    Besides the push statement in line 27 declares a second array @folder_names.

    You should really uncomment the "use strict" like already said. This will help You find and correct errors like this one.
