    The answer is in your errors: The script does not see the file in question on your system. I would suggest adding print statements on your file paths and then checking if they correspond to the files you think you are opening.

    Do you have a separator between your directories and your filename? You didn't in your original post. ie shouldn't $dirpath end with a pair of backslashes?

    Unless I state otherwise, all my code runs with strict and warnings
      yeah it should have had slashes thanks, now it does copy all the files in the dir, however I still get a cannot open the file yet but now its only happening twice, what is causing this error message is it trying to copy . and ..? apparenty that is what its doing, how do I get rid of it..I tried this but it didn't work I know its only happening because of the warning, but I want to get rid of it as it isn't really an error. not sure how to incorporate grep here..
      use File::Copy; #use strict; my $dirpath="C:\\inetpub\\performancetesting\\output\\new\\mlx\\aar\\" +; my $dirpath2="c:\\temp\\"; opendir(IN,"$dirpath") or die "opening directory failed:$!"; while (defined (my $file = readdir(IN)) ) { push (my @files, $file); foreach my $filename (@files) { copy ("$dirpath".$filename, "$dirpath2".$filename) or warn "Can't open + the file yet $filename\n:$!"; need something like my @files=grep { $_ ne '.' && $_ ne '..'} } } closedir(IN);
