Need a trigger to block mkelem to name elem with space

I am attempting to stop developers from renaming elements with spaces in the filename.  I contacted IBM tech support and they recommend I create a check-in trigger that will fire a Perl script which will check the string pattern for a space (\s or \S) and will either fail and not allow the users to name the element with the space.  I am a novice with ClearCase, and any help or guidance is appreciated in advance.

Please help.

I'm not familiar with ClearCase administration, but from looking around, this should get you close:




***** Create this perl script,
***** save it somewhere all users can access,
***** give it execute permission to all users who will run it
#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
 
my $FileName = $ENV{CLEARCASE_PN};
die "You can not use spaces in your file name\n" if $FileName =~ /\s/;
 
 
***** Execute this command at prompt to install the trigger
***** change the /path/to/perl/script.pl to what you saved the above
cleartool mktrtype -c "Trigger to prevent spaces in filenames" -element -all -preop checkin -exec "perl /path/to/perl/script.pl" CHECK_FILENAME_FOR_SPACES
