in reply to Deleting folders based on name.

Thanks for the replies.

As I couldn't access PerlMonks yesterday I ended up finding a completely different way of doing it.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use File::Find::Rule; use Date::Calc qw(Delta_Days); use File::Path qw(remove_tree); my $path="D:/FSA/Recordings/"; my @folders = File::Find::Rule->directory->in( $path ); foreach my $i (@folders){ if ($i =~ /[0-9]{4}/) { my $folder = substr($i,-4,4); my $month = substr($folder,0,2); my $year = substr($folder,2,2); my $folderyear = "1" . $year; my @folderdate = ($folderyear, $month, 01); my($curday, $curmonth, $curyear) = (localtime)[3,4,5]; my @curdate = ($curyear, $curmonth + 1, $curday); my $difference = Delta_Days(@folderdate, @curdate); if ($difference > 93) {remove_tree $i;} }; }
