in reply to Searching Multiple directories???

Try passing an array reference as the value for 'in':

in => \@ARGV

Otherwise the first element is treated as the directory to search and the remaining elements are treated as parameters to find.

    Wow, something as simple as a \, that worked perfectly. I wish I knew what exactly that did, guess I need to go research what an array reference is :) Thanks!
      You could consider arming yourself with some of the many wonderful Perl books around as well:
      Effective Perl Programming - D'Foy et al
      Conway's OO Perl
      MJD's Higher Order Perl
      In particular I would recommend the Perl Cookbook.

        You suggest these to someone who is yet to learn about references? They are excellent books, but really not appropriate for a beginner!
