OK, an additional question from another perl n00b. My search basically turned up this thread. So...

Anyhow, how do you get what File::Find *finds* into a list (array) for further processing?

The following code snippet only prints the list of files to STDOUT, but doesn't dump them into @stuff. What am I doing wrong?

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Find; use MP3::Mplib; + print "Enter the full path of your MP3 directory:\n"; my $mp3_dir = <STDIN>; chomp($mp3_dir); + my @stuff = find(\&wanted, $mp3_dir); + foreach my $item ( @stuff ) { my $mp3 = MP3::Mplib->new($item); my $v1tag = $mp3->get_v1tag; my $v2tag = $mp3->get_v2tag; + while (my ($key, $val) = each %$v1tag) { print "$key\: $val\n"; } while (my ($key, $val) = each %$v2tag) { print "$key\: $val\n"; } } + sub wanted { print "$File::Find::name\n" if -f && ! -d && m/\.mp3$/i; }
