in reply to Copying files to an authenticated Win32 share

Very neat, I always like pure Perl ways of doing stuff. A couple of thoughts:
  • If you don't have a Windows domain (i.e. have a set of disparate boxes in workgroups) then you would need to specify a valid account on the remote machine in the form "remotemachinename\\username".
  • When I ran your code on my machine, I got the following error:
    connecting \\server\share to g: Undefined subroutine &Win32::GetError called at 491533.pl line 54.
    But that could just be me missing something...
  • I'm also a bit twitchy about leaving a password in clear text lying around, but that's just me :)

LanX my favourite don't tell me the proof of concept is good enough for production anecdote
[ambrus]: ah, it's one of thos
[Eily]: what, there's a difference between proof of concept and production?
[LanX]: 20 years ago traders were complaining about the latency of the trading system...
[ambrus]: I'm currently in the process of rewriting my proof of concept programs. They sort of developped organically as I was experimenting, so now I've got an ugly mess of multiple programs and one-liners held together by nothing. I'll have to rewrite them to som
[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
