in thread deleting a file in perl

The script shown in my previous post, should work.
Usage: perl <directory_name>
Where is your Perl script, directory_name the directory you which to go through, checking which file to delete, after you have been shown the name of the file, if you want to delete the file you answer y, if not just press ENTER.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
