in reply to count files in a directory

count files in a directory

This will give you the count of "files" in a directory:

my $dirname = "/home/oracle/test/Oracle/oradata"; opendir my $DIR, $dirname or die "Error in opening dir '$dirname' beca +use: $!"; my $count = grep -f "$dirname/$_", readdir $DIR; closedir $DIR;
