in thread Reading Multiple files

Basically what i am doing is that I have around 100 text files with different file names (random names) for example TR1, TR2 and so on. I am extracting data from TR1 and saving it in another file called TR1_Result. I want a code which does this on all files and creates new result file for each of them

    That is what the code I gave is really doing.

    sub work_n_save { ... ## whatever my $filename = $File::Find::name if !-d; ## get file name if not + directory $filename = basename($filename); ## get the file base na +me ## The line below assumes, files have extention $filename =~ s/\..+$//; ## remove the file exte +ntion open my $fh_new, '>', $filename . "_Result" or croak "can't open f +ile: $!"; open my $fh, '<', $_ or croak "can't open file: $!"; while ( defined( my $line = <$fh> ) ) { chomp $line; ## do whatever you want print {$fh_new} $line, $/; } }
    Please, don't forget that the subroutine "work_n_save" is called as sub. reference in the find subroutine of the module File::Find, which transverse the whole of the directory ( or directories).
    Also, note the way the new files are opened:
    open my $fh_new, '>', $filename . "_Result" or croak "can't open file: + $!";
    Hope this helps.
