in thread deleting a file in perl

keralaqueen234,
The script shown in my previous post, should work.
Usage: perl delete_log.pl <directory_name>
Where delete_log.pl 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.
