help with perl script


Company I work for has a call center, and we record every call.  I need to transfer some of those calls to a different directory.  Everyday I am given the name of the files and path they are located in. What I would like to do is maybe have a txt file with path and the filename. Then run a perl script where it looks for the txt file, finds the files and copies them over to destination folder. Please help with writing a perl script that will be able to do that

Why not simply use a robo copy batch job to accomplish this? You could even do a "mirror" which will replicate anything into your source folder to the destination folder.

Example below...
robocopy <source> <destination> /MIR /W:20 /R:15 /LOG: \\servername\share\
robocopy "E:\test" \\server\public\test\ /MIR /W:20 /R:15 /LOG: \\server\public\logs

You can also use different switches if you like but it seems like a mirroring would be most suiteable for your situation.
