in reply to -s file test operator only works in same directory

One thing that has helped me in similar situations was to change into the directory containing the files of interest. For example, note the tiny changes to your code:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper); use File::Spec; use Digest::SHA qw(sha256_hex); print join("\n", @ARGV),"\n\n"; #print Dumper \@ARGV; my $dir = $ARGV[0]; my $url = $ARGV[1]; my @array; opendir DIR, $dir or die "cannot open dir $dir: $!"; chdir $dir; # added chdir while(my $file = readdir DIR) { next unless -f $file; # simplified fil +e check next if($file =~ m/^\./); # removed quotes print "${\File::Spec->rel2abs($file)}\n"; my %hash = ( path => File::Spec->rel2abs($file), size => -s $file, id => sha256_hex($file), ); push(@array, \%hash); } closedir DIR; print Dumper sort \@array;

Hope it works out for you!
