in reply to run the find command in perl script from window server

      How to run the unix find command from window server using perl script. below is my command.

If you have cygwin installed on windows server (not sure about Strawberry Perl or friends) you can run find2perl to create a Perl script for you and then tailor that script for your needs.


$ find2perl /var -name '*.log' -mtime +7 -print #! /usr/bin/perl -w eval 'exec /usr/bin/perl -S $0 ${1+"$@"}' if 0; #$running_under_some_shell use strict; use File::Find (); # Set the variable $File::Find::dont_use_nlink if you're using AFS, # since AFS cheats. # for the convenience of &wanted calls, including -eval statements: use vars qw/*name *dir *prune/; *name = *File::Find::name; *dir = *File::Find::dir; *prune = *File::Find::prune; sub wanted; # Traverse desired filesystems File::Find::find({wanted => \&wanted}, '/var'); exit; sub wanted { my ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid); /^.*\.log\z/s && (($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid) = lstat($_)) && (int(-M _) > 7) && print("$name\n"); }
Where you see the call  print("$name\n""); you can substitute anything your heart desires and get the functionality you really want.
