in reply to rename doesn't work on OSX?

File path is missing from parameters. Try:

my $dir = "kennel"; opendir(DIR,$dir) or die "Cannot read $dir\n"; while ($file = readdir(DIR)) { next unless $file =~ /cat/; my $newfile = $file; $newfile =~ s/cat/dog/; rename("$dir/$file", "$dir/$newfile") || print "Don't have permiss +ion to rename.\n"; } closedir(DIR);

    @vitoco and @ikegami -- the file path! Right! It's usually the simplest little things that trip me up!

    Thank you!!
