in reply to Traverse a directory

This works for me (using find in linux):

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $dirname = "your_directory"; my $user = "your_user"; my @fn = map {split /\n/} `find $dirname -user $user`; foreach my $f (@fn){ print "$f\n"; }

    Apart from forking to an external process being of questionable use, your code will fail if $dirname contains a space, or a file name contains a line break; also, you cannot iterate over the list until you get it in full (could take a few minutes).

    Anyway, I'm saying that using modules is usually more robust and flexible and portable than shelling out to some command.
