Copying Multiple Directories, then verifying the transfer with Perl ?
Posted on 2001-06-17
Okay, heres the prob I have, I am just not sure if its possible.
I want a user to log on to their intranet "back up page"
then specify which directory they want to back up on their part of the server. Then the script will need to transfer that directory (unfortunately including subdirs and files) to another location, then if the data transfer was successful then delete the dirs/files that were backed up.
This is on a network, where the server has full rights/permissions. But I dont think that perl can transfer multiple subdirs ? so I was thinking along the lines of the perl script calling maybe a batch file in order to copy information (but then I remembered that perl cant talk to batch files, or cant it), it was these point that I thought sheesh,
lets ask the experts :)
