in reply to Regex pattern to find directories only with digits

with this format "20130411". Not "2013.kjh" or "NN.201304", or "2013mmkk04".

You might need to refine your definition of 'this format'. Must it be a valid date ? Can it be in the future ? Can it be anywhere in the past ? Could it be less than 8 digits ? ... Etc. If you'd want _precisely_ 8 digits and wouldn't care about validness of the date,

m/^[\d]{8}$/ might be the regex you want,

    Thank you for your thoughts Mr K. Well I just want to find any directory whos names are only made up of digits. It could either be a date, or even just a of a one digit. like 2. Thank you for clarifying doubts so sooner. :)
