Well, what that guy said, could work, if the directory is not empty, then rmdir won't remove it, so
#!/usr/bin/perl -- use Path::Class::Rule; my $source = dir( 'x:\this\directory\name\is\empty' ); my $newdir = $dd->basename; my $destination = dir( 'C:\temp' ); if( rmdir $dd ){ my $newdir = dir( $destination, $newdir ); if( mkdir $newdir ){ } else { warn "Couldn't mkdir $newdir : $! $^E \n restoring $source "; mkdir $source or die "FAILED $! $^E"; } } else { die "Couldn't rmdir $dd : $! $^E"; }

Naturally this doesn't try to preserve permissions or anything like that

File::Copy::move should also work with empty dirs
