in reply to list of files in subdirectories

You can also use opendir system call
opendir(DIR, "/home/test"); @files = readdir(DIR); closedir(DIR); foreach $file (@files) { next if ($file eq "." or $file eq ".."); print $file; } For More detailed work on this can be found on below Link

    This falls short of meeting the OP's clear and simple specification in two ways:

    • It doesn't look in subdirectories.
    • It doesn't bother to check whether $file is actually a file (not everything that shows up in a directory needs to be a file.), so even in the directory that it does process, it's not providing accurate results.

    Remember, the OP wanted to find all files in a directory, including those found in subdirectories.
