in reply to Beginners guide to File::Find

Excellent, spurperl, a good introduction to a very useful module. There's a couple of points I feel should be included though.

File::Find is cross-platform. It's one of the really handy ways for iterating directory trees on Windows - something Microsoft don't encourage you to do, with their 'hidden files' (File::Find X-rays through Windows hidden files mechanism nicely :-).

There's also a gotcha about the direction and number of the slashes. The value of $_ and $File::Find::name is not what you would expect in Windows.

    Thanks for the feedback rinceWind

    I will include a notice about the cross-platformness of Find.

    Also, the slashes thing - I assume it mostly applies to Windows ? If so, I've seen a nice explanation about these things in another tutorial - Paths in Perl, perhaps I can include a pointer to it

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, I read that, but it's somewhat vague as in what I really have to implement, and where/how my "other" mainloop should/needs to call AnyEvent
[Corion]: (or maybe I just work better from existing code that I munge until it works and I understand it rather than a short abstract text like "implement everything that's needed" ;) )
[ambrus]: Corion: I think in this case you can get away with only a stub for idle, one that always dies when you create it, because AnyEvent::HTTP doesn't use it, not even indirectly through AnyEvent::Handle or AnyEvent::Socket or AnyEvent::DNS.
[Corion]: The "and I understand it" part is optional.
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes but I also need to implement the file / IO watcher, because Prima has that (in Prima::File), and I need to supply the appropriate thing to make push_write etc. work with Prima
