in reply to Moving .doc Files

In addition to the suggestion for File::Copy you could use the system move command:

opendir (DIRHANDLE, $OLDDIR); while ($oldname = readdir(DIRHANDLE)) { chomp $oldname; $filename = "$OLDDIR\\$oldname"; $newname = "$DIR\\$oldname"; if (-f $filename) { system("move", $filename, $newname); } } closedir (DIRHANDLE);

Just a diffrent way to do it.
