is some perl guru out there? I've a perlscript which creates a directory (this works), but it should further copy a file into this directory.

The make directory code works fine:

mkdir ("$base_dir/$login", 0777) || die("Could not create user directory:");

Could you please tell me how to code this statement in perl?

copy var/www/html/username/pic.jpg to $base_dir/$login/pic.jpg

Thanks indeed for your help!
