Thanks for the response. I am still struggling but getting a little closer. Hopefully Time::Local can bail me out. Yes you are correct that I have to get the date from the filename. Net::Ftp won't let me to long listings. Ugh. This has been very frustrating. My lack of Perl style Regex is killin me. Thanks Mike

    If this is targeted specifically to your problem at hand here, try this: my ($month, $day) = $filename =~ /(\d\d)(\d\d)x86\.exe/;
