I am calling rmtree() in DESTROY() method of a class

The error is due to the fact that the code is unable to stat the directory in question. Is the path canonical or relative? If it's relative, is your code's working directory where you think it is? Can you prove it (print getcwd)?

How are you generating your temp names? Could two threads create the same name?

In general, putting resource teardown code beyond closing a socket or the like in a DESTROY handler is a bit weird. I think you'll need to solve this with another a level of indirection. You have to go up a level and ask some parent code to clean up afterwards.

  • 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.
