    folder action not working as expected
    The following applescript is assigned to as a folder action
    -------
    on opening into folder
    do shell script "/Users/me/Desktop/done/clean.pl"
    end opening
    ------

    I have checked that the middle line works by itself by running it and getting the expected result.

    But folder-action just isn't working. Opening folder --- "done" here --- does not do any thing. I assigned it by right clicking on the folder and doing necessary stuff

    Turns out that you cannot put the script anywhere but "/Library/scripts/folder action scripts"

    Also

    The first line should be "open opening folder"
