in reply to Copy preserving attributes

Which version of Perl and File::Copy are you using? In CPAN File::Copy does indeed provided a syscopy.

Update: sorry read the docs and you are correct. On UNIX syscopy is just an alias to File::Copy::copy() Here's a thread with the same essential question.

    Yes - that was exactly the thread from 2003 that I was alluding to. But since it has been 6+ years, I was wondering whether there were any new approaches or solutions... One can always hope...
