    maheshkumar:

    Any way you like. You could do something like:

    my $output_filename="OUTPUT.001"; for my $filename (@filelist) { do_stuff($filename, $output_filename); ++$output; }

    But it would most likely be less confusing to just tack on a new suffix, or squirrel the file away in a different directory:

    for my $filename (@filelist) { my $output_filename = $filename . ".processed"; do_stuff($filename, $output_filename); }

    ...roboticus

    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
