in reply to Collapsing smaller scripts into a larger one, request for comment

How is that a problem? You seem to still be storing one file per page, just with a .txt suffix instead of a .pl suffix, unless I misunderstand. Another option is to ensure that the list of valid collections is stored in some recognizable way at each index, and have the menu builder parse the indexes.

    Here is the difference:

    ./Collections # is where scripts live and is where base_men +u looks for menu items ./files/data/Collections # is where data lives and is not where base_m +enu looks for menu items

    Taking the data outside of individual scripts means I need to figure out how I am going to rewrite base_menu to find items to add to my site menu that will work for all the index files (see below).

    ./Collections/index.pl ./Fandom/index.pl ./Fandom/Crossovers/index.pl ./Fandom/Crossovers/Big_fake_companies/index.pl ./Fandom/Crossovers/Westphall_crossovers/index.pl ./Fandom/Fictional_family_trees/index.pl ./Fandom/The_Riftwar/index.pl ./Fandom/Xanth/index.pl ./Miscellany/index.pl ./Miscellany/Geeky_thoughts/index.pl ./Miscellany/Political_opinions/index.pl ./Movies/index.pl ./Role_playing/index.pl ./Role_playing/Locations/Afma/index.pl ./Role_playing/Locations/index.pl ./Role_playing/Magic_items/index.pl ./Role_playing/Miscellany/index.pl ./Role_playing/Monsters/index.pl ./Role_playing/Player_characters/index.pl ./Role_playing/Reference_tables/index.pl ./Writing/index.pl ./Writing/Erotic_fiction/index.pl ./Writing/Fan_fiction/index.pl ./Writing/Poetry/index.pl

    The data for those indexes will be in the following.

    ./files/data/Collections/ ./files/data/Fandom/ ./files/data/Fandom/Crossovers/ ./files/data/Fandom/Crossovers/Big_fake_companies/ ./files/data/Fandom/Crossovers/Westphall_crossovers/ ./files/data/Fandom/Fictional_family_trees/ ./files/data/Fandom/The_Riftwar/ ./files/data/Fandom/Xanth/ ./files/data/Miscellany/ ./files/data/Miscellany/Geeky_thoughts/ ./files/data/Miscellany/Political_opinions/ ./files/data/Movies/ ./files/data/Role_playing/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Locations/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Locations/Afma/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Magic_items/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Miscellany/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Monsters/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Player_characters/ ./files/data/Role_playing/Reference_tables/ ./files/data/Writing/ ./files/data/Writing/Erotic_fiction/ ./files/data/Writing/Fan_fiction/ ./files/data/Writing/Poetry/

    This is what I am grappling with in my head.

    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.

    No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

      For each index.pl in the equivalent of find . -name index.pl, try ($dir = $indexfile) =~ s!^[.]/!./files/data/! and glob $dir.'*.txt' (obviously untested) as a starting point, if the files in those directories correspond to menu items.
