How can I make File::Find skip over dirs to which I don't have permission?

Description:

I am using File::Find to recursively search a set of directories, but I want to suppress errors--such as when I don't have permission to chdir() to a particular directory. By the time I'm processing the files/dirs with the subroutine, it's too late to test them.

Or do I need to roll my own?

Thanks!

Did you try -r -x ?
