in reply to File::Find in a loop

The "wanted" sub uses a GLOBAL $dir in your code. (Before I get flamed - what I mean is GLOBAL to the sub. The example below uses a lexical variable that is global to the sub)

In the "for my $dir" loop, $dir is LOCAL to the block enclosed by the "for" loop, so the "wanted" sub cannot see it.

To fix, keep $dir global:

my $dir; for $dir (@...)...

    Before I get flamed

    You're not using that word correctly :)

      From The Urban Dictionary:
      flamed
      being attacked online/on a forum.

      I think it is appropriate. Do you have an alternative suggestion ?

        A punch in the face is an attack :)

        Calling someone online in a forum a you so-and-so-name-name-insult-insult for saying such-and-such is an attack, a flame.

        Someone saying "sorry , but that is not a global..." is not an attack, is not a flame. Even if the monks get a tad pedantic at times, turning typos into "teaching moments", this isn't a flame attack.

        I'm not sure, but I think you might be thinking of "nitpicking" (not nitpicking or nitpicking or pedant/pedantic)

        Flames aren't nice, I think PerlMonks is nice :)
