I would like to be able to make it so that a code can make a folder with a variable name and put certain files in it.

You'll want to read up on mkdir, open, rename and unlink.

Here's some example code. -- Ed.

mkdir 'MyDir', 0777 or die "Oops, couldn't make dir: $!"; open FILE1, '>MyDir/test1.file' or die "Couldn't open file: $!"; print FILE1 'This goes in test1.file'; close FILE1; chdir 'MyDir'; rename 'test1.file', 'MyName.txt'; unlink 'MyName.txt';
