( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have almost forgotten why (sorry I am getting old :-) ) in fact I used the anonyme subroutine in the working script already.

The problem: I use File::Find in a script to backup my files to the floppy disk. I have a hash with keys as the source directories and values as the target directories.

So I use:

for my $source ( keys %dir ) { my $destination = $dir{$source}; find( sub { my $relativeName = $File::Find::name; $relativeName =~ s/$source//; my $sourceName = File::Spec->catdir( $source, $relativeName ); my $destinationName = File::Spec->catdir( $destination, $relativeName ); (...compare and backup if new or newer ...) }

That's why I found no other way as to feed both $source and $destination to &find and that's why I do it in a loop. Well, another option would be to call &find anew for each location in a script:

my $source = "N:/TEMP"; my $destination = $dir{$source}; find ( \&wanted, $source ); my $source = "N:/TEMP_2"; etc.

Is there another way to do it?

Thanks again!
