in reply to perl chmod tells me file does not exist (but it does)

Sometimes your script may not be operating in the directory you think it is (e.g., script run under a web server), or there may be a typo in a file name, or some other problem, etc. Comment out the chmod line and try this to see if you get what you are expecting:

my $original_mode = (stat( $original_file ))[2]; my $target_mode = (stat( $target_file ))[2]; print "Original Filename: $original_file\nOriginal mode: $original_mod +e\n"; print "Target Filename: $target_filename\ntarget mode: $target_mode\n" +;
