Re: Using grep and glob to find directories containing file

in reply to Using grep and glob to find directories containing file

Hi, I have just noticed your post and would like to propose an alternative approach. It uses the File::Find::Rule package and simplify things (in my view). This is running on perl 5.16.0
use strict; use warnings; use autodie; use File::Find::Rule; my @f_files = File::Find::Rule ->file ->name(qr/^f.*$/) ->in(qw(/dir1 /dir2 /dir3 )); foreach (@f_files) { print "$_\n"; }
The output looks like:
$ perl /dir1/f2.dat /dir1/f.dat /dir1/subdir1/f2.dat /dir1/subdir1/f.dat /dir3/subdir3/f3.dat
I hope this helps.
