Posted by kitwalker2886 (kitwalker2886), 30 May 2007i took your advice and did the modification and writing in a new file and then renamed it to the original filename..
i first named the new files as mod_$filename. Then globbed the directory for a list of all mod_* files..
Then i did a loop to rename all mod_filename as filename.
but something weird happens.. all the files get renamed except for the last file on the rename list.
i thought maybe som prob with the file and so i deleted that particular file from the directory. But still the last of the remaining files doesn't get renamed.
Any idea why this is so...?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 30 May 2007I can't see anything odd from a quick look through that. Have you printed out the @rename list completely so see if the problem is in the globbing or in the loop? That's the next thing I would do.
