in reply to how to find out if move succeeds?

You already test the result of move, you just don't change what your log writes. You also duplicated code in both branches of the if. I think it ought to go something like this:
if (not -e $newlocationlocation) { my $perm = 775; mkdir ($newlocation,$perm) or &on_err("Error making Directory\n"); } if (move ($oldlocation,$newlocation)) { print LOGFILE "$theTime,moved,$oldlocation,$folder\n"; } else { warn "Failed to move to folder"; print LOGFILE "$theTime,failed to move,$oldlocation,$folder\n"; }
