I have a minimum knowledge in perl and trying to get my head around to do a script.
I need to write a script that look for a file in a folder where modified/created date is today and and rename it by appending the current date at the end of the file name.
Then copy it to a different location,
File Name format - "ABC DEF GHI 3648.html" - This file is generated everyday with a random number(3468).
Need to rename it to - "ABC_DEF_GHI_22112012.html"
I have started with the below script,
# Specify the folder for file search
my $startFolder = "D:\\XXX\\XXX\\";
opendir (DIR, $startFolder) || die "Can't access $startFolder";
# to search for the document
foreach my $file (readdir(DIR))
#Modified today and specify the file pattern
next unless (-M $file <= 1 && $file =~ m/\ABC DEF GHI/);
The next step is to rename the file as specified above and copy it to a new location.
Please let me know the best way to do it.
