in reply to Find all JPEG files in a directory

I know you want to do this a perl-ish way, but such a task could be just as easily be done from the command line -  find . | grep jpg

    "grep jpg"? No login for you on my systems. :) One of these will actually find most if not all of the files with a JPEG extension without matching files like "not_a_jpg.gif". Whenever you have a fairly simple match, you'll come out ahead using the find built-ins rather than piping to grep.

    find . -name '*.jpg' -o -name '*.jpeg' -o -name '*.JPG' -o -name '*.JPEG'

    find ./ -name '*.[Jj][Pp][Gg]' -o -name '*.[Jj][Pp][Ee][Gg]'

    And if you must use grep, do it right!

    find . | grep -i '[.]jpe\?g$'

    find . | egrep -i '[.]jpe?g$'
