in reply to Unlink Permission Denied

I'm not sure why those two lines of code don't work for you. I tossed them into a script and it removed the "output.txt" file just fine. Perhaps something before you attempt to unlink the file is causing you problems? What error are you getting from this? That might be helpful for us to know as well.

    It did? Well this is the code:
    sub mail_results { my $file = 'D:\Sysad-perl\scripts\Reports\AntiVirus Status\mailrpt +.txt'; if ( -e $file ) { # # Mail the report. my $sender = new Mail::Sender {smtp => ' +m', from => ''}; $sender->MailFile({to => '', subject => 'McAfee AVP Level Report', msg => "Here is today's report.", file => $file} ); } unlink $file or $! == 2 or die "Cannot unlink $file: $!"; }

    This is the message

    Cannot unlink D:\Sysad-perl\scripts\Reports\AntiVirus Status\mailrpt.t +xt: Permission denied at D:\Sysad-perl\scripts\Reports\AntiVirus Stat +us\ line 3 65.

    I wonder if the fact that it is win32 causing the problem?
