in thread opening new file in different directory

Not to be an ass, but how would this help us? It seems the germane info is in $! not the script name and line number.

I'm really asking and not trying to fish slap you.

Ira,

    Look at it again:
    open(WRITE,">$file") or die( "Cannot write to $file: $!" );
    You are missing the point of his request. He wants to see what $file is, in addition to the $! variable. Why? Because the error "No such file or directory" begs the question "What file is the program trying to create, and in what directory?"

      Goip! Read carefully and ye shall find knowledge.
      Thanks for humoring me. :)
