I essentially want to combine what these 2 do

As for your code, it's pretty long and I've only skimmed it for now, but one thing I noticed is that you're using ->stringfiy a lot, into temporary variables. While certainly not wrong, it's kind of cluttering up your code a bit - for debug output, you should be able to print the objects directly, and also note that it's not necessary to stringify the objects only to turn them back into objects again later. Using $srd3 as an example:

my $rd3 = dir( ... ); my $srd3 = $rd3->stringify; mkdir $srd3 or warn "couldn't make $srd3: $!\n"; say "srd3 is $srd3"; $b = file( $srd3, $_ );

Can be written instead as:

my $rd3 = dir( ... ); $rd3->mkpath(); say "rd3 is $rd3"; my $f = $rd3->file( $_ );
