in reply to Deleting old files from directory

Here is how to do it without the array and without using grep.

I prefer File::Glob these days since it allows whitespace in the path but it won't work like this in a while loop so I end up with a foreach loop and an array.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; while (<test/*.txt>) { if (-f && 10 < -M _) { print "\n Deleting::: $_\n"; unlink or warn "--Could not unlink $_: $!"; } }
