( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I know this is plain, flat heresy, especially here inside the monastry, but why use perl for this at all?
find /your/path -mtime numberofdays -exec rm -f {} \;
Father, forgive me, for I have sinned ... ;-))

Update:

Once again I am humbly admitting that merlyn and tilly made good points (see below). So now we have three chief reasons (weapons) for a perl solution:

After this confession, shall I be free? Hey, stick away from that comfy chair ...
(do you know that feeling when you should do your already late travel and time reports for your company but keep lurking around instead? Oh boy ...)

Title:
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.
