Thanks I had forgoten about the die command, but in this case it did not help.

    It's not really the die that's important. It's the test of file operation and the printing of $!. You could just as easily write:
    if (!-d "e:/web/public_html/eagle_f91/ffinfo/protected/images/$Game") +{ mkdir("e:/web/public_html/eagle_f91/ffinfo/protected/images/$Game" +) or print "$!\n"; }
    If there's an error it should populate $!, that error message will tell you what went wrong (generally). So it should either work or give you and error. So it has to help.

    grep
    One dead unjugged rabbit fish later...
