( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In general, Windows is sufficiently different from Unix that no single simple rule will cover all of the changes you're going to have to make if you're using system(). If you can find ways to do things in pure Perl, without relying on external commands, that will be much more portable. As others have pointed out, mkdir exists as a Perl builtin. Other things can be done with modules (although getting CPAN working on Windows can be non-trivial, so you may want to constrain yourself to modules that ship with a particular Perl distribution for Windows).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
