Assuming you're using the parse_dir function from the File::Listing module...

The following will populate the @dirs array with the names of the sub-directories in the current directory (excluding all hidden directories which begin with the dot character):

use File::Listing qw(parse_dir); my @dirs = map { my( $name, $type ) = @$_; $type eq 'd' ? $name : () } + parse_dir(`ls -l`);

To include 'dot' directories (except for the special . and .. directories), you'd simply use ls -la:

my @dirs = map { my( $name, $type ) = @$_; $type eq 'd' ? $name : () } + parse_dir(`ls -la`);
