    Yes, and preformed a number of google searches Have also printed out most of the Perl manuals and spend time searching for the logic behind why my code as is does not preform as expected.

      Then consider looking at the debug facilities that File::Path offers for make_path. Especially the error facility.

      Also, from your code, it is not clear to me which statements are supposed to execute together and which are to demonstrate your problem. Especially the following two lines:

      my @thefiles = <$GSR_fh>; ... make_path(map {chomp} <$GSR_fh>);

      Once you've read a filehandle (like $GSR_fh) to its end, you need to seek to the start again before you can read the file again. But why re-read the file if you can use the data in @thefiles?

        Confused by comparing this reply to other thread where use of $_ is added. Pondering the meaning.
