Quick File::Find Questionby r.joseph (Hermit)
|on May 06, 2001 at 04:49 UTC||Need Help??|
r.joseph has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hey All! I know that when you call File::Find::find(\&wanted,"/foo/bar");, the find() function passes some stuff to the wanted() function that it uses internally.
My question is, how do I pass data to the wanted() function without having it complain? Here is a small snippet of code I tried that attemps to pass two filehandles to the wanted() function:
MAINDB is just a DB of directories to search, and C_LOG and R_LOG are simply two log files that program data needs to print to. However, when I try this, I get this message:
I am assuming that this is dealing with the \&wanted function call and also assume that it is complaining because I tried to pass parameters to it - any thoughts on why this is happening?
P.S. Here is my wanted() function:
Pretty simple - just checks if the file is actually a file (not a directory or something else) and if so calls copy_file([filename],[filehandle1],[filehandle2]); Guess that wasn't exactly a short question, but it should be quick work for my fellow monks who are much more intelligent than I! Thanks a ton!
