in thread Inserting, update and deleteting a database under conditions

The results of map are not 0 or 1, @menu_files actually stores the filenames from the strign with the path and txt
. How could i write the same thing with grep?

    my @menu_files = grep m{([^/]+)\.txt}, @files;
      If only was that easy

      I tried out but 'grep' doesn't strip the filename out of the bigger string, now pop up menu has entries like this:

      D:/www/data/text/name_of_the_file.txt

        I personally believe that then you should explain what it is that you want. Based on other nodes in this thread, I suppose that that's 'name_of_the_file.txt'. In that case, I would do:

        # untested use File::Basename; my @menu_files = map { my $n=basename $_; $n =~ /\.txt$/ ? $n : () } @files;
        --
