in reply to How do you list all files under a directory?

Here is some code to find emacs ~ files and delete them.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use File::Finder; use Data::Dumper; # list of dirs to look in my @start_dirs = ( '/home/chad/' , ); my $finder = File::Finder # do not go into the ~chad/Archives/ directory. ->type('d')->name('Archives')->prune->comma # match the following properties. ->type('f') # files ->name('*~') # named glob(*~) ->ctime('+6') # inode changed time more than 6 days ago # ->ls() # print `ls -l` of file ; # run the finder command now. my @file_list = $finder->in(@start_dirs); # delete the found files. my $count = unlink @file_list; print "\nUnlinked $count files.\n"; exit(0);
