in thread help with unraring

My code is same as i have shown earlier

use Archive::Unrar qw(list_files_in_archive %donotprocess process_file +); use IO::CaptureOutput qw(capture); my @files; { local ($stdout, $stderr); capture sub {list_files_in_archive( file=>"C:/perl2exe/For perl 5.10. +1/test.rar" ,undef)}, \$stdout, \$stderr; @files=map {/Archive contents : (.*)/ } split ("\n",$stdout); } foreach (@files) { print "file ",++$i," : ",$_,"\n"; } ($result,$directory) = process_file( file=>'C:/perl2exe/For perl 5.10.1/test.ra +r', password=>undef, output_dir_path=>"C:/extract/", ); } print "$result"; print "$directory";

$result gives me the chain error

    paths in windows uses backlashes

    file=>"C:\\perl2exe\\For perl 5.10.1\\test.rar",

    ($result,$directory) = process_file( file=>"C:\\perl2exe\\For perl 5.10.1\\test.rar", password=>undef, output_dir_path=>"C:\\extract" );
    try and tell me
      paths in windows uses backlashes

      Only some tools (including cmd.exe and are restricted to backslashes, the API functions accept both forward slashes and backslashes in all versions of DOS and Windows. So, using forward slashes is perfectly ok.


      Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
        not in this case.use the aforementioned code, change the slashes,and see what happens

      I changed backslashes but still gives me chain error. Another thing i noticed is that if i comment out list_archives_in_file method , it extracts to the location but if i list_archive first and then process_file it gives the chain error.

        does it extract the files? if yes,forget about the "error" as I have already explained
