in thread dir handle

If you just want a list of the files in a directory then it's easier to just use glob

Also note that the files in a directory are not ordered, so any list will be in a random order unless you sort it.

Your code could then look something like this :-

use File::Basename; my @files = glob('/path/to/files/*'); foreach my $file (@files) { my $name = basename($file); if (! -x "/new_path/$name") { # copy file here } }

Have a look at the help for File::Basename or better yet File::Spec for functions to safely handle paths & filenames
