Problems deleteing PERL created files.

Hi,
    I've written a PERL script that creates a file.  The problem is when I log onto my ISP through CuteFTP and try to delete this file it tells me it's forbidden.  I'm guessing the premissions are incorrect, however I wish to leave the file at 755.  I'm guessing also that it's because PERL is creating the file and not me so I don't own the file.  So how would I go about bestowing ownership of this file upon myself.

So if I replaced fred with my user name it should have worked if I had access to chown right? Cause it didn't.

Thats correct.
If you make a simple perl/web interface to manage the files that perl creates for you would be your best bet.  I actually set the permissions to rwrwrw, and password protect the directory my perl created files live in then i just log in through ftp and im all set.
BTW, I dont think your host provider will give you superuser priv's.

sorry,
