Sure, it takes more code. That's what happens when you try to use a general purpose language instead of a task-specific mini-language.

    Greetings all,
    In the end, I ended up simply using a "system" call within Perl:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use POSIX qw(strftime); $|++; my $gmtstring = strftime "%F %H:%I:%S", localtime; my $filename = "symlinked-iso-file-with-limited-lifetime"; my $arg1 = ('-XP . -type l -cmin'); my $arg2 = ('+15'); my $arg3 = ('xargs rm'); system("/usr/bin/find $arg1 $arg2 | $arg3");
    It's just going to have to do, until I become more proficient in Perl.

    Thank you all again, for all your time, consideration, and patience. :)

    --chris

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;
