Re: perl script to print just directory names
in thread perl script to print just directory names
"but can please someone show me how to store these basenames in some sort of array so that i can use them later part in the code."
Consider reading and understanding the code you've posted, you already do this for a different array/value:
So rather than print the value of basename($file) to screen push the value of basename($file) into @dir_names.Read push, http://learn.perl.org.
Update: slight clarification.
