in reply to chdir in perl

Okay, maybe I'm misreading this, BUT:

It seems as if you are doing a `chdir $mpath`; which shells out to change the directory to the value of $mpath. Then you try to a chdir($mpath) ... which seems redundant.

One thing: are all the values of $mpath ones that would work fine on a chdir? Meaning, no spaces, no tabs, etc? Just a though, because I've been bitten by that myself.
