well, sorry, i could've right away ...

it fails right after i start it off with "./ <profile.xml>" with
the following error message.

Not enough arguments for mkdir at ./ line 240, near "$_) "
Execution of ./ aborted due to compilation errors.

as i said in my first mail, i have perl 5.005_03.
if you need anymore information to track this error down just tell me :-)

AFAIR the manpage does not tell anything about mkdir defaulting to anything
as i have done a lot of perl programming already, i'm quite surprised to
anything like that ... i've never come across a mkdir default mode
