in thread File::Find seems grossly inefficient for performing simple file tasks

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. :)

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