G'day darkblackblue,

This looks like you're running into a backslashitis nightmare. I think I'd aim for something closer to:

my $path_base = 'C:\Users\darkblack\Desktop\A\.'; ... my $dir = $path_base . $directory_name;

I don't have an MSWin box to test this on; however, the basic concept works fine on my system:

$ pwd /Users/ken/tmp $ ls -al .fred ls: cannot access '.fred': No such file or directory $ perl -e 'my $x = q{/Users/ken/tmp/.}; my $y = q{fred}; mkdir $x . $y +' $ ls -al .fred total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 ken staff 68 Dec 4 18:27 . drwxr-xr-x 19 ken staff 646 Dec 4 18:27 ..

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
