The OP copied the lines for the open calls that I provided -- but skipped the rest of the script. Granted I missed the check on the readdir, but I also noted that (and at least failure there would just mean that @files would be empty, rather than trying to alter files in the wrong directory).
I had hoped that the OP would see what was intended with the advice given, but I think that's too much to ask.
