in reply to how to redirect output in different files

You can use File::Basename to break out the part of your filename you are interested in.
use strict; use warnings; use File::Basename; for my $infile (@ARGV) { my $fname = basename( $infile); # replace the part of the filename you want to change $fname =~ s/list/out/; # add the target directory to it. my $outfile = 'outfile/'.$fname; open my $ih, "<$infile" or die("Cannot open $infile"); open my $oh, ">$outfile" or die("Cannot open $outfile"); { local $/ = undef; <$ih>; # slurp the file # sure you want to replace whitespaces with returns? # also may need to alter this as operates on whole file now s/\s+/\n/g; # global replace print $oh; } close $ih; close $oh; }
If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
