Re: How to copy a file in a perl variable to a directory
in thread How to copy a file in a perl variable to a directory
While it is certainly advisable to output $!, it is not always clear whether the reported error relates to the source- or the destination file. This is particularily true in case the code is supposed to run on Windows, where I found that many kinds of access problems lead to the same error string.
I would therefore also do some basic checks before calling copy, at least: read permission on the source file, write permission for the destination directory.
