in reply to Recursive directories

File::Path->make_path is used to make a path, so you should define your $path before. If you try:

use File::Path 'make_path'; $path = '/'; File::Path->make_path($path); chdir $path or die "Cannot chdir: $!";

it will work and it does for me

To get the path you can do something like:

use File::Path 'make_path'; use Cwd; $path = Cwd::getcwd; File::Path->make_path($path); chdir $path or die "Cannon chdir: $!"; print $path. "\n":

    be careful. You probably get what you don't want. Jenda explained it very nice. When you do the following assuming you have the correct rights:

    use File::Path 'make_path'; File::Path->make_path('huhu');

    you create two directories: File::Path and huhu. Try it with:

    File::Path->make_path('huhu', { verbose => 1});

    after removing the newly created directories in you test cwd.


      Yes, you are right, it indeed created in a strage way two folders and is not what I meant as I didn't want the directory File::Path. Good to know, thank you for your point!
