Not suprisingly, tye
is correct about the behavior of readdir
, and File::Find
. Running a script similar to my nimda repair script on a Win2k pro box shows files flagged with the system and hidden attributes.
Running the same script on a Novell Netware server doesn't show hidden and/or system flagged files consistantly. The problem seems to be Netware related rather than perl related. Using the Novell flag command to remove the hidden and system attributes on the effected files before running the script, took care of the problem. I will try to reproduce the problem with files that are less dangerous and update this node with my solution.
Thanks to everyone who responded.
