( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi folks, I come is search of wisdom. How do I get just the filename from ls -Rla? I have:
@data=$ftp->ls("-Rla"); foreach $line (@data) { print $line."\n"; }
but I get
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 680 Aug 12 12:01 is41bt1p.scc
What I am trying to do is perform a $ftp->get($line); but since it is getting the full line, it isn't working. Really need and appreciate the help

follows the full program if you need more context. I am a novice so be nice.

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use Net::FTP; my $dir = '/home/geouser/Bluedevil/Test'; my $host = ''; my $login = 'user'; my $passwd = 'password'; my $ftp = Net::FTP->new($host); my $RC = $ftp->login("$login","$passwd"); if (not $RC) { print "\n\nFTP Login to Remote Host: '$host' failed!\n\n"; print "No files updated from Remote host: '$host'!\n\n"; exit; } # Go to the specified directory print STDERR "Changing directory to <$dir>\n" if ($DEBUG); if ($ftp->cwd($dir) == 0) { warn "$program: can't change directory to <$dir>\n"; return(1); } @data=$ftp->ls("-Rla"); foreach $line (@data) { if ($line =~ /^-/) { print $line."\n"; } } $ftp->quit;

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
