Just for completeness and fun a simple GUI solution for the Mac using AppleScript:

set theWindowTitle to "PerlMonks" set theSuffix to text returned of (display dialog "Enter a file suffix +:" & return default answer "" with title theWindowTitle) set theFolder to (choose folder with prompt "Enter directory") set thePerlScript to quoted form of (POSIX path of ((choose file with +prompt "Select a script:") as Unicode text)) -- display dialog "Script: " & thePerlScript with title theWindowTitle tell application "Finder" set theFiles to (every file of theFolder whose name extension is t +heSuffix) --as alias list end tell repeat with theFile in theFiles set theFile to quoted form of (POSIX path of (theFile as Unicode t +ext)) display dialog "Found: " & theFile with title theWindowTitle set theResult to do shell script thePerlScript & " " & theFile display dialog "Result: " & theResult with title theWindowTitle -- beep end repeat

Perl script:

#!/usr/bin/perl while (<>) {print}

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
