in reply to Phantom directories created using mkdir

Hi ,

The $scalar , is it defined using a my (should be) you should use like

if ($scalar ne ""){ $dir_name = "/path/$scalar"; mkdir $dir_name, 0777 unless -d $dir_name; }else{ # print " the error and exit $! \n"; }

As I have only this part of your total post , I guess you are checking for the definition rather than the value of the scalar variable
