in reply to Unification of Directories (their contents)

My thoughts upon reading this (which I hope would prove helpful) were :

  1. Use File::Find to generate a list of files (also potentially at this point exiting or asking for processing options for duplicate file names)
  2. Use the -d dirname test, mkdir() and File::Spec to create subdirectories that may be needed
  3. Use File::Copy's copy() function for the final movement

At least, that's the process I would likely procede with (assuming a better solution were not proposed).

HTH.

[stevieb]: I'm working on it to fatten it up and make it more reliant so I can finalize my Raspberry Pi automated build system for that software :) It's all well and fun, until I try to make it work with Windows lol
[shmem]: "debugging a program is more difficult than to write it in the first place. If you code your program as smart as you are, you are, by definition, too dumb to debug it."
[stevieb]: I literally laughed. That's good :) Perhaps I just need to go climb another mountain and forget about it
