1. I "wanna" know if you have read the man pages for mkdir and date.
2. I "wanna" know why so many people on this forum type "wanna" when they mean "want to".
3. I "wanna" know if I'm the only person that this type of thing pisses off.

evo2: relax, sorry, i didnt know is such a sensitive words to u. Be COOL YA!!! Gentleman is a big word for u.

Dear vinaytp,

These are my source code,


use POSIX 'strftime';
$month=strftime("%m%d",localtime);#folder name month & year

if ($buf=~/\(application (.*?) \)[\r\n]/) {
$command = $1;
if ($command =~ s/-O "(.*)"/-O "$application\/$month\/
$file"/) {
$command="$application/appli $command";
print "[$command]\n";
system "$command";
}

This source code create folder in the date format. Is it possible to create the folder same as the file name and date together.

Is this clearer to u.

thanks in advance

Hi,

ok, I've calmed down now :-)

Looks like you are writing in perl? Sorry not I'm not at all well versed in that language. However I think I can understand enough of it to know what you are trying to do. Would you be interested in writing this as a shell script?

Do you mean that "the Swiss Army chainsaw of programming languages" (= Perl) is the only scripting language available on Centos? Surely this cannot be!
