Re^2: list files based on age and pattern
in thread list files based on age and pattern
That is, because you are doing closedir before readdir. If you were running under use warnings;, Perl would have given you an error message like
readdir() attempted on invalid dirhandle $dh at test-m.pl line 5.
Sorry it is mistake while copy paste but in the actual script closdir is after the readdir.
there is no syntax or compilation error, only no files.
My fault. You need to add the path to the filename when testing with -M like this
I only tested in the current directory where it does not make any difference.
