in reply to get list of files matching part of file name

Here is a File::Find solution
#!/usr/bin/perl # non recursive case insensitive search down # thru current directory for pattern in filenames. use warnings; use strict; use File::Find; $|++; my $search = $ARGV[0] or die "need search pattern $!\n"; my $path = '.'; my $regex = qr/\Q$search\E/i; find (sub { #prevent recursion into subdirs my $n = ($File::Find::name) =~ tr!/!!; #count slashes in file return $File::Find::prune = 1 if ($n > 1); return if -d; # return unless (-f and -T ); # limit to text files print "$File::Find::name\n" if /$regex/; }, $path);

[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
