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 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 :)
