in thread listing all files of a dir

There really isn't much dirty work to be done here. The File::Find approach is more complex, for no added benefit to his particular need.

Sure, if you're diving recursively into a directory structure, File::Find, File::Find::Rule, etc., are the tools of choice. But he's reading a single directory. He didn't say anything about diving deeper into the structure.

Using File::Find to deal with a single directory is like using Data::Deep to look at an integer held in a scalar variable.

    hi davido,
    "..Sure, if you're diving recursively into a directory structure...He didn't say anything about diving deeper into the structure"
    You are right in the sense that the OP didn't say anything about diving deeper into the structure. But am almost certain that you wouldn't be surprised that "this" follow sooner or later, I can almost bet my dinner on it. :)
    And you are right ultimately because one should stay within a "asked" question as much as possible, I was only trying to predicts the OP ...
    AHooohhsh my crystal ball is broken..
    Thanks.

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.
