in thread Tired of "Perl is dead" FUD ?

After changing jobs from software developer to database developer, I find many more cases where Perl is a perfect tool because I'm now working closer to databases. While I have no wish to move to a full DBA or system administration job, this is working out well with about 70% development and 30% DBA work.

It seems that some DBA jobs are actually interesting Perl developer jobs in disguise.

[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 $File::Find::name =~/\.mp3$/ }
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, that is understandable! The two examples in File::Find don't make sense to me on a quick glance.
[marioroy]: LA if the find worked from Unix command line, or does it not. Likely a quoting issue inside Perl qx.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, the find worked fine at the command line.
