File::Copy has a handy move function. The most important thing to remember is that readdir does not return the path just the files in the specified dir. So you have to remember tack the path back on before doing anything else like file tests or renaming.
use strict; use File::Copy qw ( move ); my $dirname = "./temp"; # dir you want to open; my $iterator = 0; opendir (DIRHANDLE, $dirname) or die "could not open dir: $!"; foreach (readdir(DIRHANDLE)) { #need to add path my $filename = $dirname . "/$_"; next unless -f $filename; move ($filename, $dirname . "/" . $iterator++) or warn "could not +rename file"; }
