Here is what I am thinking:

I have a program that exists that contains lets say a folder named "1000" and in that folder is 5 small files, 2 php and 3 txt files, very small.  Is it possible to have perl create upon submit a folder in each succession, say next folder name "1001"...then next folder name "1002" and inside each of the those folders is the same 5 small files?

I guess this is called replication.

for my $d ( 1001..1005 ){
