addady,

Meanwhile, try this variation of your code.

use File::Copy;

if (!(move("c:/a.a","c:/a.done"))){
  print("1st msg\n");
  print("2nd msg\n");
}

Let me know how it goes.

What's wrong is that the "or" operator requires two EXPRessions.  A BLOCK is not an EXPRession; your code has

  {
    print ...;
    print ...;
  }

which is a BLOCK.  You can use the 'do' keyword to make that BLOCK an EXPRession:

  move("C:/a.a" => "C:/a.done") or do {
    print ...;
    print ...;
  };
