You can do better than just take fixed arguments:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use File::Find; sub make_wanted { my ($function, $get_argument_function) = @_; return sub { $function->($get_argument_function->()); } } sub delete_file_with_user_confirmation { my ($file_name, $user_input) = @_; if ($user_input =~ /yes/i) { unlink($file_name) or die "Error: no unlink for $file_name: $!"; } } sub get_user_input_for_file { # show full path to user print "Delete ", $File::Find::name, " (say 'yes' to delete)? "; my $user_input = <STDIN>; # but remember we chdir()ed into $File::Find::dir return $_, $user_input; } my @dirs = @ARGV ? @ARGV : ("."); find(make_wanted(\&delete_file_with_user_confirmation, \&get_user_input_for_file), @dirs);
