@one = readdir (DIR);
in reply to Hello im new to programming i need help
If anyone else in the world is going to read your code, e.g. you post your code on a programming forum, than you have to use descriptive variable names. If I told you that I had an array named @ten, and I asked you to guess what each element of the array was, what would be your guess? What are the odds you would be correct?
Your @one array contains file names, so how about naming it @file_names or @fnames?
In your opinion, what is the difference between these two lines of code:
$initialfile2 = $file;
$initialfile2 = "$file";
