Hi; I use the delta package to monitor a directory and want to find the file modified and then copy it to a new path immediately and automatically in background when i am composing these files simutaneously. I tried the following codes which were copied from I tried to run the codes, but always got a wrong message "Can't call method "scan" on an undefined value at C:\Hunan\PHD\PHDPAPER\ line 13." use File::Monitor; my $monitor = File::Monitor->new(); use File::Copy::Recursive qw(fcopy rcopy dircopy fmove rmove dirmove); # Watch some files for my $file (qw( c:\\Hunan\\PHD\\PHDPAPER )) { $monitor->watch( $file ); } # First scan just finds out about the monitored files. No changes # will be reported. $object->scan; # After the first scan we get a list of File::Monitor::Delta objects # that describe any changes my @changes = $object->scan; for my $change (@changes) { # Call methods on File::Monitor::Delta to discover what changed if ($change->is_mtime) { my $name = $change->name; my $old_mtime = $change->old_mtime; my $new_mtime = $change->new_mtime; print "$name has changed size from $old_mtime to $new_mtime\n"; fcopy ("$name", "p://newpath"); } } Would you pleas to help me figure it out, this will be great help to my paper writing. Thanks a lot for your time! Withe best regards!

You should call $monitor->scan not "$object"- you have the wrong variable name.
