Okay, here's my very cheesy entry. It actually doesn't follow the rules, but it's the best I could do ;) I at least followed the intent (on finding missing files).

You pass missing a list of files (which must be presorted :) and it will return all the missing ones. No other options are available, but in the case of a directory of files, it works.

sub missing { for$x(($_[0]=~/(.+)\..+/)[0]..($_[$#_]=~/(.+)\.(.+)/)[0]) {push@x,"$x.$2" unless grep$x eq(/(.+)\..+/)[0],@_};@x; } print missing qw (bar001.jpg bar002.jpg bar010.jpg);
That's 111 characters. It's sloppy, it's very confined and it's not compliant. But shoot, I couldn't do it correctly. I should add, however, that mine version doesn't require the filenames to start with "bar" or end with ".jpg". They can be anything. The missing function properly handles most things.

[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
[Marshall]: I also looked into PerlApp from Active State, but they don't sell their Dev Kit independent of a very expensive ($1,200) per year license anymore.
[Corion]: I would assume that the PE format hasn't changed that much since the days of yore, but it seems that I would be wrong in that assumption
[Marshall]: When I bought my copy 15+ years ago, it was just a couple hundred bucks.
