But I figure that someone may have already dealt with this issue here. In fact,
_I_ have dealt
with this issue some years ago, somehow, but for the life of me, I can't
remember how I did
I'm writing a script to automate the management of some program settings in
and Settings\xxx\Application Data\yyy. The script needs to manipulate files in
move out some files and move in others. Well, the problem is that I can move
out anything I
want, but using rename() I can't move in anything. The error is reported as "No
such file or
directory," which doesn't make sense.
It seems that the Documents and Settings directory tree is treated differently
by the system.
All directories there are marked as read-only in Explorer, and the setting
cannot be removed.
However, files within the directories are not necessarily read-only (the ones I
am trying to
manipulate aren't). No other programs seem to have any trouble with these
Perl is defeated by them.
What can I do here?
