Update: I noticed that Errto already pointed out your mistake with absolute filenames as keys. Repetita juvant :)

You're comparing files from different disks. So, you simply have that:

"c:/temp/filename.txt" eq "e:/temp/filename.txt"
is false, even if you expect it to be true. You should therefore remove all the prefix that makes your paths different, and you'll probably be happy then. In your case, you can remove the disk specifier, for example:
"/temp/filename.txt" eq "/temp/filename.txt"
is true at last. Also, keep in mind that Windows filenames do not make distinctions between uppercase and lowercase (at least FAT32), so you'd better use lc on the filenames before using them as keys in your hashes.

Don't fool yourself.

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
