( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear Monks,

I am reading though a large set of dated directories with a large number of dates where the number of <date> directories is much larger than the number of parent <dir> directories. There is only one date "dir" per parent in the future--the rest are in the past. I just have to find these future dates.

dir1 / <date1> dir1 / <date2> dir2 / <date3> dir3 / <date4>

I am currently using glob("*/*") to loop through all the dates to find all the ones in the future. My glob has become annoyingly slow and I'd like to speed it up. Any ideas how I can use readdir() to return an array of "dir / <date> " of only the future dates

Thank you for your time--always appreciate the help & advice.

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.
