in reply to File::Find stat question

I recently was wading through something like 8k worth of digital photos, looking for duplicates and doing other little chores and found that Path::Iterator::Rule worked pretty nicely. I did not read your code carefully, but it looks like that module might work as an alternative for you. The module does have -X tests and I found it to be pretty simple to configure rules.

If nothing else, I find that looking at how another module approaches a problem sometimes helps me better understand the module I am working with...

Just a thought...

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...otherwise, the problem is not a problem, it is simply an inconvenient fact
