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

I am a total beginner and have a script like this: It runs fine the only problem is it does not copy the data in output1.txt to output3.txt. It creates output3.txt but does not copy the data. Why?

#!/usr/bin/perl my $server = `uname -n`; print $server; chomp $server; # Display all the files in /tmp directory. $dir = "/usr/ent/newdir/db/sign/*"; my @files = </usr/ent/newdir/db/sign/*files*>; open(my $outfh, '>', '/tmp/output1.txt') or die "cannot open file"; foreach $LINE (@files ){ print $outfh $LINE; close FH; } use File::Copy; {$oldlocation = "/tmp/output1.txt"; $newlocation = "/tmp/output3.txt"; copy($oldlocation, $newlocation); }

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
