in reply to tar help

The ptar perl script which comes with Archive::Tar shows you how to do this using File::Find. Relevant fragment:

if( $opts->{c} ) { my @files; find( sub { push @files, $File::Find::name; print $File::Find::name.$/ if $verbose }, @ARGV ); Archive::Tar->create_archive( $file, $compress, @files ); exit; }

    This looks like the path that will get me where I am trying to go. Thank you for your attention on this matter. For the record, I have a shell script to make the tarball and I have a script in ColdFusion to create the tarball and FTP it. I am attempting to learn some perl and that is why I am trying to write a script for something I have accomplished in another language. Expanding my knowledge with a point of reference.
