in reply to Unlink files but not in pwd

With recent versions of File::Path you can do the following:

use File::Path 'remove_path'; remove_path("/path/of/dir", {keep_root => 1});

This will remove everything in the directory, but not delete /path/of/dir itself.

update: oh, you want to unlink according to a pattern; I missed that on the first pass.

[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, then that is a problem. I wanted to find total seconds of my entire .mp3 collection to do some math on it to see how many days of continuous music i have.
[LanX]: darn. .. I wanted to see Marine and Melonchon go to next round, just for fun xD
[Discipulus]: LA use Perl: traversing a dir tree is simple; foreach file mp3 $sec+= use Mp3::Info
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I was able to get the sum of the seconds on the command line using awk. Then I ran the result through a perl script and got the result. It came bach with 4 days, 9 hours, 56 minutes, 43 seconds.
[Lady_Aleena]: s/bach/back/;
[Discipulus]: gired anyway is the intermediate state between hired and fired (and vice versa;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipuluis, I don't know if I want to fight with File::Find. File::Find and I are not friends.
[Discipulus]: 4 day Bach is too muche even for me
[Discipulus]: LA you know who is paco?
[Lady_Aleena]: Disc, nope.
