Will this work? Can't Post

Hi everyone!!!

I have never tried this code yet but i just want to ask if this would work?


my $dirname = "/my/directory/temp/".$foldername; #folder name is extracted from database

my $filename = <filename>; #filename is also extracted from database

opendir(HANDLER, $dirname) or die "Directory cannot be open!";
my $tmpFile = grep{/$filename/} readdir HANDLER;
close HANDLER;
move($dirname.$filename, "/my/directory/archive/".$foldername);

Question: $filename may contain a file with or without an extension. Will this work on both ways? Will it also work if there are spaces within the filename?

move() is not a perl function so it will not work. move() might be a function of a perl module, in which case you should read the documentation of the module and try the code and see if it works.
