in reply to Re^9: rename issues
in thread rename issues

That is correct so I have taken out the rename, but this creates two sets of file one set with the old name and one set that is modified with the new name and modified text. the end result I want is to have the files renamed than open those files and do the switch inside them and not have the old file there at all. I think I am confusing myself here maybe I need to do another subroutine what do you think??

    uh, no, unless unlink failed for some reason??? unlink deletes. How can you be left with something you've deleted?

      Darn unlink didn't work, but it was my fat finger trying to get this done in a hurry thank you it works now I owe ya one big time!!

      Thanks so much!!
