I intend to keep all the text in the __DATA__ fields, but not in their current directories. I am not sure what the difference is between me leaving the files in place and renaming them or moving the text to a new directory with a similar new filename.
./Collections/Fiction.pl # to ./Collections/Fiction.txt # or ./files/text/Collections/Fiction.txt
Leaving them in place would mean adding another grep to exclude all .txt files in the directories in base_menu along with initial lower case files. I'm having difficulty rewriting base_menu for the new structure I am contemplating.
I think .dat would expand to "data", so what would .lat expand to be? I am curious.
My OS is Debian 10 (Buster); my perl versions are 5.28.1 local and 5.8.8 on web host.
Version control is a non-issue, I do not use it.
