  • Your problem is getting rid of a file with a far too long name? Have you thought of using the 8.3 filename (AKA "DOS", or "short" file name) to identify the file? In case you didn't know: ActivePerl has some functions to convert the long file name to the short file name and vice versa, built in. See `perldoc win32`, under "Win32::GetLongPathName" and "Win32::GetShortPathName".

    Granted, I don't have W2k here, so I can't be 100% sure it actually works.
