runrig,

I don't follow you. File::Find::Rule does not simply return every file (although it can). You can instruct it what to return based on type, size, name, and even make a determination via a custom sub. You can have the sub perform actions and ignore the larger return value, or iterate with the start and match methods.

    Read the OP. I didn't say FFR has to return the entire list, the OP says the entire list needs to be processed. So, in this case, FFR would return the entire list of files.
      Ah, gotcha. But you can work around building the entire list:
      use warnings; use strict; use File::Find::Rule; File::Find::Rule->file->exec( sub { print $_[2], "\n"; return 0; } )->in('/path');
