Hi Vijay8l,
Am trying to read directory/subdirectories and for files from a path recursively

Why not use File::Find instead of doing all the jobs yourself.

..reading file content(usually just 1 line in a file) and substituting space with comma from the line.
Are you trying to create a Comma-separated values files? If yes then see Text::CSV.

Just to give a head up, using File::Find and substitution function, I did something very close to what you wanted.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use File::Find; my $base_dir = '...'; # put in your base directory find( \&wanted, $base_dir ); sub wanted { return if $_ eq '.' or $_ eq '..'; if (-d) { print " >>> dive into: $_\n" if -d; } else { readout_file($_); ## call subroutine readout_file } } sub readout_file { my ($filename) = @_; open my $fh, '<', $filename or die "can't open file:$!"; while (<$fh>) { chomp; s/ /,/; ## OR s/ /,/g; if you want print $_, $/; ## OR any other subroutine you want } }

Seriously, Please look into Text::CSV if csv files are intended.
If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
