Move files based on filename Can't Post

I was looking to move a group of files in a folder based on their file names. I have a bunch of files that need to be moved to specific folders each month that all get grouped in a download folder. I was looking for a perl script that would take them out of the download folder and move them into their designated group folders automatically ie 3 files go to one folder 5 to a different folder and so on. Any help would be appreciated thanks

use the function glob (Refer: perldoc -f glob) to read the download directory. Use regular expressions to identify the type of file. Use the move function of the module File::Copy to move the files.
Good Luck,
