First section of script

This part of the script checks every remote file to see if the workstation has an equivalent; if it does not, it copies it over. The slight snag is that the local file list only contains ".pl" files (as dictated by the part of the script at the top of p.38), whereas we check ALL remote files, including NON ".pl" ones. This means that the script will try to copy "." and "..", which is not good! Luckily, this is an easy error to spot and alter. The line which now reads: else `xcopy z:\$remotepath\$remote_file $localpath\$remote_file`; Should be replaced with: else { if($remote_file =~ /.pl$/) { `xcopy z:\$remotepath\$remote_file $localpath\$remote_file`; } } I don't know how this error was missed; the copy of the script that I have works fine (i.e. HAS this change in it).

Colophon: the first line of the third paragraph now reads

"Edie Freedman designed the cover of this book, using a 19th-century engraving from the Dover Pictorial Archive." Should read: "Hanna Dyer designed the cover of this book, using a 19th-century engraving from the Dover Pictorial Archive, based on a series design by Edie Freedman."
