in reply to strange File::Find thing?

You forgot to backwhack the dots in your patterns, and to anchor them at the end with a '$'. You're getting everything that contains 'h' or a 'c' (except as the first character).

Incidentally, you'll need to double the backwhack and backwhack the '$' unless you use // for the pattern (which is recommended). So you should spell it: if (/\.c$/ || /\.h$/) { push ... }

BTW, "$File::Find::dir/$_" is already available as $File::Find::name.

    Thanks! I knew that regex looked odd, but I got fixated on the module. Have rearranged both attitude and code properly. -Chris

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
