in thread What makes File::Find's interface so commonly hated
It’s not that I have trouble figuring out how to use File::Find, and I doubt all the experienced programmers who are outspoken about its interface have any either. I’ve made it do a lot of things it was probably never meant to. But doing simple things is much less simple than it could be, and some of the hard things are not even possible at all – in short, the interface runs counter to general Perl philosophy.
