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

In fact, the documentation about readdir mentions the fact that you need to prepend the directory again.

Just in the (very unlikely) case that the files actually exist, the error message suggests that the OP is trying to move them across mount points. This would happen for example if you have two disks mounted below /mount:

/mount/hda/dir1 /mount/hdb/dir2

Then, moving files from /mount/hda/dir1 to /mount/hdb/dir2 would mean actually copying the bytes between the two devices. At least the mv program (and thus, maybe also the rename() syscall?) on my Debian system does such copying nowadays...

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.
