I have this snippit of code:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use English; use diagnostics; use File::Copy; use File::DosGlob qw(glob); my $error=0; copy($_,'Z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'E:/EudoraPro/*.mbx'; printf ("Mailboxes done!\n"); copy($_,'Z:/mail_test') foreach glob 'E:/EudoraPro/*.toc'; printf ("TOC's done!\n");
Some of it I picked up elsewhere some of it is my own. What I wanted it to do was to copy all the *.mbx and *.toc files to a network share for backup purposes and then to tell me it completed that task. The copying works fine, but I never see the "Mailboxes are done" and TOC's are done" messages. I'm using Activestate Perl v5.6.1 build 633 on a Windows 98 machine.

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.
