First off, Use strict warnings and diagnostics. It'll make debugging a lot easier.

Secondly, try removing the        finddir("$root$file"); from within the foreach loop. You're exiting the loop after the first iteration.

Update: Oops. Read that wrong. Hang on a sec.

Update 2:

my %config = ( home => '/home/cjf/' ); my %user = ( site_id => 'code' ); my @alldir = finddir("$config{home}$user{site_id}"); print $_, "\n" for @alldir; sub finddir { my $root = shift; chomp $root; $root = $root . '/' unless ( $root =~ m|/$| ); local *DIR; opendir DIR, $root or die $!; my @userfiles = sort grep !/^\.\.?\z/, readdir DIR; my @direct; foreach my $file (@userfiles) { next unless ( -d "$root$file" ); my $dir = "$root$file"; $dir =~ s/^\Q$config{home}$user{site_id}\E//; push(@direct, $dir); } return @direct; }

That will return all directories in $config{home}$user{site_id} but not go into the sub directories. Is that what you're looking for?

    no I want to return all the direcotries is $config(home)$user{site_id}
      You really, really should consider File::Find (I see its already been suggested, but I think its worth mentioning out again).
      use File::Find; find (sub { print "$_\n" if -d; }, $dir);
