How odd. Try this SSCCE which works fine for me.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Copy 'move'; my $indir = '/tmp/foo'; my $outdir = '/tmp/bar'; mkdir $indir; mkdir $outdir; for my $f (qw/a b c/) { open my $out, '>', "$indir/$f" or die "Opening $f: $!"; print $out 'Woo-hoo!'; close $out; } opendir my $dir, $indir or die "Bad Dir $indir: $!"; while (my $infile = readdir ($dir)) { if ($infile =~ /b/) { print "Moving '$infile' ...\n"; move ("$indir/$infile", $outdir) or die "move failed: $! moving $indir/$infile to $outdir" +. " while we are in $ENV{PWD}\n"; } else { print "Skipping '$infile' ...\n"; } }

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.
