in thread I have a folder which is having 1200 files,all the file names are have maximum of 8 character length.I need to remove last character from each of the filnames and prefix it with character "A"

Grep pattern used for getting files can be modified to reduce the for loop iteration as you're going to rename only file names which are less than or equal to 8 characters with .doc extension.

@files = sort grep /^.{1,8}\.doc$/, readdir(DIR);
