    Use File::Find, for every dir you find, check if the corresponding file is in it.

      Can someone give me a starting point?I am very very new to perl.Basically every directory which starts with "o-le-v7" and "a-le-v7" should have one of *.so,*.o,*.a,if they are not present print the directory

        What have you done so far? Where do you have problems? Do you know how to write a loop? Do you have a perl book at hand or some other documentation to find suitable functions and methods for your problem? Can you write a script that shows what you already know how to do?

        Here a few more pointers:

        If a string starts with some other string, you might use substr() and string equality operator 'eq' or a regular expression, i.e. if ( $x=~/o-le-v7/) { ... }

        To read the contents of a directory, you might use glob() or File::Find (if you want to search subdirectories as well), or readdir()

        With the operator '-d' you can find out if some file is a directory, i.e.  if (-d $file) { ... }

    Just use File::Spec and glob
    use File::Spec; use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my ($dir, $ext) = split ' '; my $path = File::Spec->catfile($dir, "*.$ext") . "\n"; if (! glob($path)) { print "No '$ext' in $dir\n"; } } __DATA__ CMA\data\files\arm\so-le-v7 so ama\data\files\arm\so-le-v7-g so media\data\files\arm\o-le-v7 o encdc\data\files\arm\o-le-v7-g o qcp\data\files\arm\a-le-v7 a pcn\data\files\arm\a-le-v7-g a
