in reply to count files in a directory

Maybe a more concise approach, using globbing ?

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $dir = '/home/oracle/test/Oracle/oradata'; my @files = <$dir>; my $numfiles = scalar @files; print "Files in $dir: $numfiles\n";
Hope it helps.

    It might work if you add
    chdir $dir or die "Cannot chdir to '$dir': $!"; my @files = glob '*';
