Not necessarily. File::Find is the solution I would use if the script is to be run regularly. However, with a one time change, I would still use the command line. It's just so easy. If I have five levels to recurse, I run it five times. Granted, if there is an unknown level of subdiectories, then a folder could be missed, but this one-liner has served me well and I just thought I'd share it. TIMTOWTDI, right? I guess I should have explained that in previous reply.
