in reply to symlink woes

You could use lstat to determine whether your directory is actually a symlink to a directory and readlink to find out where it is pointing. The standard Cwd module might also allow you to keep better track of which directory you are in. I'm not sure how useful these pointers will be when having to interact with sudo but, hopefully, they will help you move forward.

Cheers,

    Maybe expanding on something like:
    use File::Find; # might be helpful use Cwd; # also pretty useful with this sort of thing my $files = <some array here...>; my $where = readlink("$files"); print "$files => $where\n";
    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;
