in reply to How you came about...

Google search, here

I've used pearl here and there for years, but nothing serious. My current job put me in the position of trying to parse log files and after much aggravation with shell scripting, I decided to go for Perl. I'd been a consultant for years and after a long time of trying to marry different technologies, I've become dependant on google for technical solutions... good for getting things done quickly, but not good for learning anything other than bad habits.

One of my searches dumped me here and as I had opportunity to more than scratch the surface of a technology or language, I've spent more and more time here... much to everyone's chargrin :)

[Lady_Aleena]: File::Find doesn't have a simple sub wanted example, like get the name of the file.
[Discipulus]: there is also find2perl with your perl installation
[Discipulus]: and in the wanted sub you just calculate the duretion and add it the total, stop
[shmem]: sub wanted { push @files, $File::Find::name if $File::Find::name =~/\.mp3$/ }
