    Take a look at Win32::FileOp.

    As a side note I thought I remember seeing a mv option in File::Copy.


      You are 100% correct Nitrox, there is indeed a 'mv' option in File::Copy, it's called 'move':
      use File::Copy; move ("somefile", "somewhere") || die "Couldn't move somefile to somew +here - $!\n";
