in reply to copy script

Hi raghu_shekar,

Read all the files in an array. Using perlre match the partial filename with the original file name, as per your requirement. Then using copy function, you can copy to the target location.
For example:

if ($original_filename =~ /$partial_name/){ // add some more conditions to filter further based on your requiremen +t }

    Hi, I have around 10 different directories which im storing in an array and looping through them and trying to find the file. I am sure that there is only one file with the name.. eg <*activ*>. Any easier way how i can fine this one file on the fly without having to store all the files in an array and looping through them..?

[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
[karlgoethebier]: thanks ;-
