    Does the script look ok to you?

A couple of things I would change is to add use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/; and then remove the chdir and put in the path $ENV{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/ into your $a and $b vars. I would also put the $a and $b between quotes.

#!/usr/bin/perl print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; use CGI; $q = new CGI; $a = "$ENV{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/file1.htm"; $b = "$ENV{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/file2.htm"; rename("$a", "$b") || die "Can't rename $!";
Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
