in reply to unlink fails to delete files with perculiar names

unlink ($targ) || carp "Unable to delete file $targ\n";
Unlink is different than "delete".

Can you provide more information about how and why "unlink" does not work?

    Unlink is different than "delete".

    Do stop pushing this pointless distinction.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
