You have to put them where you want them. In your example that would be

my @stuff; sub wanted { push @stuff, $File::Find::name if -f && ! -d && m/\.mp3$/i; } find(\&wanted, $mp3_dir);
or better
my @stuff; find(sub { push @stuff, $File::Find::name if -f && ! -d && m/\.mp3$/i; }, $mp3_dir);
Except it isn't better, since all you're doing is to process them one by one. So do it right in the callback function:
find(\&wanted, $mp3_dir); + sub wanted { return unless -f && ! -d && m/\.mp3$/i; print "$File::Find::name\n" my $mp3 = MP3::Mplib->new($item); my $v1tag = $mp3->get_v1tag; my $v2tag = $mp3->get_v2tag; + while (my ($key, $val) = each %$v1tag) { print "$key\: $val\n"; } while (my ($key, $val) = each %$v2tag) { print "$key\: $val\n"; } } +
Update: That should be push @stuff, $File::Find::name, not push @stuff, $_, otherwise you loose the path.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    Thanks for the post. The first suggestion actually worked well. I want to do a lot more here (as you might be able to imagine) than just print the MP3 ID(v1|v2) tags. So it is *handy* to have the entire file list available as an entity.

    Thanks, again.
