in thread renaming filenames

Some questions.

1. Active Perl or Strawberry Perl ?

2. What shows your $_ in your program ? With my XP, it shows 8.3 style file names(For example, "Program Files"=> Progra~1).

foreach (@files) { print "$_\n"; my $original = $_; s/canción/poesía/; rename "$directory\\$original", "$directory\\$_"; }
What would $_ with Windows 7?.

3. When you install Win32::Unicode,Win32::Unicode::Dir, Does this work ?

use strict; use warnings; use utf8; use Win32::Unicode; use Win32::Unicode::Dir; my $wdir = Win32::Unicode::Dir->new; $wdir->open('./'); while ( my $file=$wdir->fetch ) { next if( $file !~ /^canción/ ); my $file_new=$file; $file_new =~ s/canción/poesía/; printW "$file ==> $file_new\n"; #moveW($file, $file_new) or die $!; } $wdir->close;
I tried with ActivePerl. As "andalou" says, I also met the same error when calling moveW. It seems lacking XS's function which is calling Win32API. I guess Strawberry Perl works ... fine?

I understand OP="andalou" now. If you are using Active Perl,

ppm install " +FASSP+V2+multithreading%2Fpackages%2FWin32-Unicode.ppd"
will remove your Win32::Unicode error messages. </code>

    Thanks remiah. How did you find the workaround for installing Win32::Unicode using ActivePerl?
    Is it better to uninstall ActivePerl and install Strawberry perl?

      I googled with Win32::Unicode.ppd and found it. I always do this when my ppm-shell find no suitable package.

      But I am just tired of searching package for Active Perl...

      I can't uninstall Active Perl, because there is some working script. I would like to migrate gradually.
