I suggest using Path::Tiny for working with the files: its visit method can recursively walk a directory tree and apply a subroutine to each filename found, accumulating a list of matching files. The solution to matching the filenames will depend on the naming format used.

Update: since you showed the format elsewhere ... try something like this:

use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; use Data::Dumper; use Path::Tiny; use Time::Piece; my $root = "/Users/1nickt/perlmonks/11133966"; my $today = localtime->strftime('%Y%m%d'); my %list; path($root)->visit(sub { my $path = shift; next unless -d $path; my $date = substr($path, -8); if ( $date =~ /^[0-9]{4}[0-2][0-9][0-3][0-9]$/ && $date gt $today +) { push(@{ $list{$_->parent} }, $path =~ s{.+/}{}r); } }, { recurse => 1, }); say Dumper \%list;

Hope this helps!

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

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.
