Care to share your script?

My ex-employers own the last ones I wrote, but they're pretty simple. Use File::Find to traverse a hierarchy, then ignore file types that aren't interesting (like .doc or .exe), and finally processing files that are. Stripped of extraneous detail, they look something like:

use File::Find; my $ignore = '(?:\.exe|\.doc)$'; find(\&consider, $root); emit_report(); sub consider { my $path = $File::Find::path; return if $path =~ m/$ignore/o; process($path); }
Processing consists of slurping the file into memory and running a set of regexs against it, recording which files match which regex. Then sort the hashes and spit out HTML. It's just bookkeeping at this poing. Being a potential memory pig isn't a serious issue for a script that runs once a day at 2am.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
