Here's a simple file-type reporter based on File::Type, and of course our wierd friend, File::Find:

use strict; use warnings; use File::Type; use File::Find; find( sub { -f && print "$_\t => ", File::Type->new()->checktype_filename($_), $/ for $File::Find::name; }, scalar(@ARGV) ? @ARGV : './' );

It's a little concise; I was trying to have some fun with it. One hint: The 'for' clause is used to alias $_ to $File::Find::name so that I wouldn't have to keep typing it all over the place. Also, since I only use $obj->checktype_filename() once, I chose to not store the object's ref in a variable, but rather, just dereference the return value of File::Type->new(). ...a couple of golf tricks that didn't seem to hurt readability too much.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
