As others have pointed out, your problem seems to stem from the chdir command. Your solution involved placing yet more stuff into the BEGIN block where the chdir is.

My question is - why use a BEGIN block here in the first place? A BEGIN block is used when you want something to happen at compile time. In your case, you have "use" statements that take place anyway at compile time - so why place them in a BEGIN block? You also run a few other commands that may or may not benefit from being run at compile time - I can't tell. But from what I see, you would gain more clarity if you moved everything in the BEGIN block to the body of the program.

Just my 2 cents worth...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
