cannot move file using file::copy module
Posted by callisto (callisto), 15 April 2006I try to write a perl script that will move the files from Windows 2000 to Unix, but "fail to move"..
The Move function in Unix can be used in Windows 2000 or other Windows?
below is the code, pls advice on how to resolve it, thanks..
well I execute the code in C:\Perlscript, then the btest.txt is also in the same directory..
#!/usr/bin/perl -------> This line should be omitted in Windows? but whether I omit or not omit still show "fail to move"
move($oldloc,$newloc)or die "fail to move";
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 15 April 2006The #! line will be ignored in windows (unless you're running under something like an apache web server) and in any case it will do no harm.
Does the subdirectory test already exist?

Yes, the subdirectory already exists..
