( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am trying to match the regex of the filename and if it matches i want to move the file into another directory.But when i run the script, i get the error as "move failed: Invalid cross-device link".Please help me.The code is given below:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use File::Copy; $InDir = $ARGV[0]; $OutDir = $ARGV[1]; if (!opendir(DIR,$InDir)) { print "Bad Dir $InDir\n"; exit 1;} while(my $Infile = readdir(DIR)) { if ($Infile =~ 'F\d{8}\.\d{4}\+\d{4}\-\d{4}\+\d{4}_.*') { move("$Infile", "$OutDir") or die "move failed: $!"; } elsif ($Infile =~ 'F\d{8}\.\d{6}\+\d{4}\-\d{6}\+\d{4}_.*' ) { < something........> } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
