In case you need to search recursively, you may use the File::Find core module:

use strict; use warnings; use File::Find; # Search current dir unless dir(s) given as command line args @ARGV = qw(.) unless @ARGV; find( \&get_dirs_with_numbers, @ARGV ); sub get_dirs_with_numbers { return unless /^\d+$/; # your regex print $File::Find::name . "\n"; }

find function from File::Find scans directories in @ARGV recursively and for each file calls the referenced function (coderef) get_dirs_with_numbers. Before calling your function find by default changes to the directory being scanned and sets the following variables:

  • $File::Find::dir -- visited directory path relative to the starting directory
  • $_ -- basename of the file being visited
  • $File::Find::name -- full path of the file being visited

Well done is better than well said. -- Benjamin Franklin

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
