Greetings RichardK, and thank you for your reply.
Yes. This is exactly the sort of return I had anticipated (as you provided).
With the exceprion of:
which should have read:file->name('*.iso')
as ./iso/ was a reference I used to a directory.file->name('*.xz')
referring to *BSD UNIX' version of FIND(1).-cmin n True if the difference between the time of last change of file status information and the time find was started, rounded up to the next full minute, is n minutes.
Which is actually the most important part of my reason for trying this;
I need to clobber (perldoc -f unlink) symlinks (perldoc -f symlink) older than 11 minutes. Unfortunately, Perls find2perl only provides:
NOTE: (measured in days, see below), which is different than the find the system provides.-atime N True if last-access time of file matches N (measured in days) (see bel +ow). -ctime N True if last-changed time of file's inode matches N (measured in days, + see below). -mtime N True if last-modified time of file matches N (measured in days, see be +low). -newer FILE True if last-modified time of file matches N. # # # See below: # # # 1. * N is prefixed with a +: match values greater than N 2. * N is prefixed with a -: match values less than N 3. * N is not prefixed with either + or -: match only values equal t +o N
#!/usr/bin/perl -Tw use perl::always; my $perl_version = "5.12.4"; print $perl_version;
