File::Util make_dir unwanted output
when using this sub, if I pass a directory with bad characters it spits its output to the console like this:
PROCESS TERMINATED DUE TO ERRORS File::Util can't use this string for �the name of a directory�. �ddd??---?d� It contains illegal characters. Illegal characters are: \ (backslash) / (forward slash) : (colon) | (pipe) * (asterisk) ? (question mark) " (double quote) < (less than) > (greater than) \t (tab) \ck (vertical tabulator) \r (newline CR) \n (newline LF) Origin: This is a human error. Solution: A human must remove the illegal characters from this string. ARG _pak = File::Util ARG purpose = the name of a directory ARG string = ddd??---?d 1.

How to suppress this output (I just want to print "Bad" without all this detailed info)
use File::Path qw/mkpath/? I don't know whether it runs under windows though, but it's worth a try.
