in thread Trouble with File::Find::Rule

I use this code chunk quite a bit to get directory contents without extra modules, and the nice thing is you only change one line to re-direct to another location, or you use a variable that you pass to it...

This particular version sorts the list and reads the contents of the files into an array, if that is of any value. The array dots is a list of all the files in the directory that you can grep for a pattern and work with.

$sd = "../data"; opendir( DIR, $sd) || die; while( ($filename = readdir(DIR))){ next if "$sd\/$filename" =~ /\/\./; push @dots, "$sd\/$filename"; } ## end of while @dots = sort @dots; closedir(DIR); for($a=0;$a<@dots;$a++){ open (FILE, $dots[$a]); push @foo, <FILE>; close FILE; } ## end of for

    tbone654, thanks for the code! I have used something similar in the past as well but in this case I need to go into all the subfolders of the root folder, thats why I was using File::Find::Rule.
