in thread how to permanently monitor a directory

This:

my $items_in_dir = @Dircontent; if ($items_in_dir > 2) ..
won't work if some smart alec decides to create a subdir in your drop area. try using -f

TISMTOWTDI:

use strict; use warnings; sub scandir { my $dir = shift; my $fileProcessor = shift; opendir (DIR, $dir) or die "Cannot open $dir: $!\n"; for (readdir DIR) { if ( -f ) { &$fileProcessor($_); } } close DIR; } sub do_something { my $filename = shift; print "got file: $filename\n"; } sub do_something_else { my $filename = shift; print "got another file: $filename\n"; } scandir('.',\&do_something); scandir('.',\&do_something_else);
