Welcome to perl!

Stick with it. It is useful for so many things and there is help to be had in many places.

I've provided you with some code for tutorial purposes but I'd recommend going with Mikes because it is more elegant and versatile.

The script below works on files in the current directory containing the perl script.

For information on $|, visit Suffering from Buffering. It basically makes sure your output comes out as expected.

For more information on perl, such as the localtime() and stat(), functions, checkout perl.org and your local ActiveState documentation and, of course, Google is your friend.

use strict; use warnings; $|=1; # Buffering my @filenames; opendir DIR, "." or die "Failed while trying to open current directory +\nPerl says: \n$!"; @filenames = readdir DIR; # Get list of files in current directory shift @filenames; shift @filenames; # remove . and .. foreach (@filenames) { my $mtime = (stat($_))[9]; # Get mtime for file my $year = (localtime($mtime))[5] + 1900; # Get year for file my $month = (localtime($mtime))[4] +1; # Get month for file my $day = (localtime($mtime))[3]; # Get day of month for file if ($month >= 03 and $year == "2013") { if ($month == 03 and $day >=20) { print "Filename: $_\n"; } if ($month == 04 and $day <=21) { print "Filename: $_\n"; } } }

The code to drop in your script might be: (Warning: Not tested)

my @filenames = parse_dir($ls); foreach (@filenames) { my $mtime = (stat($_))[9]; # Get mtime for file my $year = (localtime($mtime))[5] + 1900; # Get year for file my $month = (localtime($mtime))[4] +1; # Get month for file my $day = (localtime($mtime))[3]; # Get day of month for file if ($month >= 03 and $year == "2013") { if ($month == 03 and $day >=20) { print "Filename: $_\n"; } if ($month == 04 and $day <=21) { print "Filename: $_\n"; } } }

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.
