Sorry, but I think you missed something:

a) You must NOT use File::Path->make_path if you don't want to create directories named 'File::Path'. You can use

use File::Path qw(make_path); make_path($dir);

or

use File::Path; File::Path::make_path($dir);

b) I can't see the reason for your chdir-problem from the three lines of code given. So you missed to provide some further context. At least you have to explain what you expected and what you got.

    I wouldn't still agree on the point a) I can run it the way I have written it without having created any "File::Path" directory. Something like that will work without problem:
    for (@list) { File::Path->make_path($path); }
    The problem strikes when I have to chdir into that directory to do something there, like create a file but that's not even necessary. This piece of code creates me the mentioned "File::Path" subdirectory compared to the above :
    for (@list) { File::Path->make_path($path); chdir $path or die "Cannot chdir: $!"; }

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, what?
[james28909]: check is is data or hash or array and do tasks then return needed data
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, you might want to look at the other two on my scratchpad.
[james28909]: after you send to a sub, you can check if it is array or ref ect with ref
[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
