in thread renaming a file and moving into another folder

I try not to use tricky Perl syntax when writing code for new folks. I try to explain how what I write works

Post a working solution to the questioners problem, and even if they do not understand how it works, they make forward progress. And it encourages some of them to read or question how it works, and learn in the process.

It is completely irrelevant to the users of rename what actually happens under the covers. You could go through an entirely succcessful career without ever knowing those details.

Explaining them, especially at a level that despite your verbosity, was entirely superficial, as it does not describe what actually happens in any given file system, does not help answer the question asked.
