in reply to Getting list of files transferred using File::RsyncP

Sorry if I'm missing something, but why not just look at the time stamps on the files to determine what to process?

    The timestamps are kept from when the file was created originally, not from when they were transferred to the storage server or to the processing server. Basically, the file creation time is not an indicator of when the file was received.

[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
[Cosmic37]: you are right $mydt did not contain what I expected... :-D I will now think :-D
[Cosmic37]: crunch...grind... whirr...gnashing metal crunching cogs...
