in reply to M3U Playlist Generator

This thread is over 10 years old, so I'm reviving it.

Below is my rewritten version which does not depend on File::Find. Comments welcome.

    Below is my rewritten version which does not depend on File::Find

    Why?

    Comments welcome.

    $inpath can be file ( use -f or -d inestead of -e, since both -f and -d imply -exist )

    $inpath could contain glob metacharacters

    I'm personally not a fan of interactive commands, exit program if file already exists and overwrite not forced ( Getopt::Long ),

    $inpath could contain glob metacharacters

    if you don't want to recurse, you could write

    use File::Find::Rule; my @files = find( 'file', 'name', qr/\.mp3$/i, 'maxdepth', 1, 'in', $i +npath );

    FWIW, if you need to do path manipulations, Path::Class::Rule is better than File::Find::Rule;

    3 argument open is better than two, "or" is better than "||" since it doesn't require extra parens

    open my($fh), '>', $file or die "can't open '>', $file : $! ";

      Below is my rewritten version which does not depend on File::Find

      Why?

      Because I cannot understand the documentation. I'll take a look at your example and keep playing. Thanks!

      $inpath can be file ( use -f or -d inestead of -e, since both -f and -d imply -exist )

      Good point! -d would be best because the $inpath should be a directory.

      $inpath could contain glob metacharacters

      Doh! I did not even think of that ... because on my system it will not!

      3 argument open is better than two

      Old habits are hard to break.

      Thanks! Your comments have been very helpful.
