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

This is the sort of thing I usually use for such purposes. Note this is recursive and therefore will search subdirectories also. :-)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # Recurse directories to find .txt files use strict; use File::Find; my $file = ''; my $dir = ''; @ARGV = qw(.) unless @ARGV; # current dir unless otherwise specified $dir = shift @ARGV; sub process_file { return unless -f; #skip directories $file = $_; if ($file =~ m/\.(txt)/si) { # do stuff here } } find(\&process_file, $dir);


Update: Deleted a spurious line from the code. The original is from an example on recursive editing, and I stripped some (but not all) of the non-relevant code. Oops. ;-)

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.
