in reply to run a perl script for all files in a folder

Hi,

Or you could either use opendir function to open up the folder in question and then, get each of the file with readdir function to "work" on like so:

use warnings; use strict; opendir my $dh, $ARGV[0] or die "can't open directory: $!"; while ( readdir $dh ) { chomp; next if $_ eq '.' or $_ eq '..'; #..... get each file to work on .... } closedir $dh or die "can't close directory: $!"; ### or use File::Find like so: use File::Find qw(find); find( sub { print $_, $/ }, $ARGV[0] );
The Anonymous subroutine, could be used to do what you want on each of the file in the folder.
Please check the following for more info:
  • perldoc -f opendir
  • perldoc -f readdir
  • perldoc File::Find

Hope this helps.
