    I moved about 10 mails and run the script. It replace all 10 mails with only one file, 1. It wiped the 9 mails that I needed to preserve.

    [/quote]

    Code:
    ash@nwsupplies:~/test$ ls
    11111111  22222222  33333333  44444444  55555555 534985789345 test.sh
    ash@nwsupplies:~/test$ sh test.sh
    ash@nwsupplies:~/test$ ls
    1  2  3  4  5  6 test.sh
    ash@nwsupplies:~/test$
    is the output it gives. I have absolutly no clue why it would replace mails with one file.

    You install Ruby, then do:
    Code:
    chmod +x script.rb
    ./script.rb my_dir_full_of_files
    [/quote]
    Here is the results ...

    Code:
    [compunuts@dvdplayer test]$ ls
    1036090007.1941.VQYn:2,S
    1036102905.1941.7y5S:2,S

    1036119107.1941.eTnT:2,S
    script.rb
    test.sh
    [compunuts@dvdplayer test]$ ./script.rb /home/sysadmin/test/
    ./script.rb:12:in `rename': wrong argument type Fixnum (expected String) (TypeError)
    from ./script.rb:12
    from ./script.rb:11:in `foreach'
    from ./script.rb:11
    So now, what do I do??

    Please help ...

    It will assure, the $TMPVAR is climbing, but if you reach MAX_LENGTH of assignment for the $TMPCNT it will start from 0 again.

    Ah, your script seems to do what I wanted to do ...

    THANK YOU !! THANK YOU !!

    But I also likes to know what is the therotical MAX_LENGTH of your script?? If I ever got it working of what I wanted to do, I will work with you to summit the scripts to either KMail group or Sylpheed group which you will take credit for it.

    Thanks again.

    I can't remember what it is, but is it the max length of a string you can assign to a variable in a bash script..

    Its gotta be mentioned in the man page somewhere..
