How to smrt copy files between folder in Perl?

Hi,
I have the following code that does a smart copy from a folder that has bin and lib directories to bin and lib directories at a different location.

When you run this code, it gives you the conflict between the source and the target locations. This part works fine, but the problem is if there are too many conflicts the user has to approve all of them one by one.

The change that I am looking for is to show the conflicting files to the user all at once and prompt to the user to take an action to either continue even though there is conflict and over write the files or to quit the process.

BTW, this is a follow up question from:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Perl/Q_28319462.html#a39751638

If you have any questions, please check with me before you spent time instead of making assumptions.

Please see the code below:

I'm pretty sure this will do what you want.  It will warn you if there are conflicts between products specified on the command-line but will arbitrarily choose the first one.  If there are issues, let me know - I did this mod quickly without testing...

oh. I found it. the square bracket was missing in line 59.

But there was one more thing.

The warning that I see is:

Name "Text::Wrap::Columns" used only once: possible typo at release2Production.pl line 392.

why do you think I get this?
