in reply to Trouble using a Win32 file path in an array

And I tried this on a system with Perl 5.8.0 with similar success:
SEA32895-N2 c:\HELP\PerlScripts>perl Found C:\HELP\Docs\R2009\sp01\ SEA32895-N2 c:\HELP\PerlScripts>perl -v This is perl, v5.8.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
Is it possible that you do not have permission to read one of the directories in the path \HELP\Docs\R2009\sp01 and so are failing on permission rather than not seeing the directory?
