in thread needing to zip files in a series that begin with the same IP address

Thanks for your help. I am having trouble nailing that part just right i have tried several zip calls but the code is failing. Thanks for the heads up on Modern::Perl I was curious of what the module was doing.

here is what seems to be the best educated guess

#!perl use Modern::Perl; use IO::Compress::Zip qw(zip $ZipError) ; my %files; my @files = <*.txt *.docx>; for (@files) { next unless /^(\d+.\d+.\d+.\d+)/; push @{ $files{$1} }, $_; } for my $ip ( keys %files ) { my $output = "$ip.zip"; do { zip => $output, $ip -> $_ } for @{ $files{$ip} }; }

    Remember to check for any return errors when zipping. Also, you can pass an array reference to zip, so try the following:

    for my $ip ( keys %files ) { zip \@{ $files{$ip} } => "$ip.zip" or die "zip failed: $ZipError\n +"; }
