in thread File::Copy - not working!

Since your incoming path seems to have Windows type backslashes as delimiters, I am using that below.

However, you should always use forward slashe, even under Windows, and get rid of them as soon as possible with something like: $path =~ s.\\.\/.g; use warnings; use strict; use File::Basename; my$path_to_file = 'bla\bla\full\path\to\file.ext'; $path_to_file =~ s.\\.\/.g; my ($file,$path) = fileparse($path_to_file); print "$file is in$path\n";

For copying files using File::Copy, you do:

use File::Copy; copy $file,$newpath or die "Cannot copy $file to$newpath:$!\n"; -- Regards, Helgi Briem helgi DOT briem AT decode DOT is Comment on Re: Re: Re: File::Copy - not working! Select or Download Code Re: Re: Re: Re: File::Copy - not working! by Anonymous Monk on Jun 20, 2003 at 10:37 UTC I tried the above and it did not work as expected, or shall I say at all. my$path_to_file is a file form field on a web page being displayed on a windows client, hence c:\...... do you think that is why it does not work? Is your \$path_to_file on the same machine (in my case the linux web server)?
