Filename Templateby AcidHawk (Vicar)
|on Aug 07, 2003 at 14:43 UTC||Need Help??|
AcidHawk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am wanting to search for file names that conform to a certain pattern. I want to read the pattern from a config file, something like aaaa-nnnnnnnn. The config part is not the problem, the template bit is. This config value should match files that have 4 alpha characters, then a -, then 8 numeric characters.
I have looked (a bit) for template modules but the majority of these are for HTML.
Some pseudo code to try and help explain.
The files I want to do something with look something like ABCD-13022003*.* or even ZZZZ-99999999*.* I would also like to be able to change the config to something like aa-nn-aa, which would match XX-55-DD*.* files.
Has anyone any direction to point me in?-----
Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
