Hi Ken, thanks for testing. The last character of your file appears to be different than mine. I don't think providing my code at this point is relevant. Going by Anonymous' comment, I'll investigate how to handle file with what appears to be a ^M (\r) at the end of a filename. -Brian

    Well, it really shouldn't need special handling, other than making sure when you warn/die... the filename is escaped, because \r among other chars doesn't show up well in console :)( Basic debugging checklist )

    open should just open the file, so first thing to try is feeding it proper Dumpered filename -- if that works, you know what to work on next, which is

    how the filename gets to your program, if its readdir, it should work, if its @ARGV or something else, you might need to decode utf8 ... see utf8, how to unicode filenames?, how to make a filename in unicode characters
