Certainly the tests I am having are showing some really good speed advantages in Linux anyways.

Speed advantages compared to what? While implementing these commands in Perl can be a good exercise, I would be very surprised if a Perl program is faster than the system rm, mv, and cp commands, all of which are implemented in C on GNU systems — and most distributions of Linux use the GNU coreutils package. All of those commands accept the -v option to list the files on which they act and that can be easily translated to "running dots" with Awk: (untested)

cp -v $FROM $TO | awk '{print "."}'

I am not entirely convinced that Perl is the right tool for this job, unless, again, you are doing this as a programming exercise.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
