This quotation of the glob in the shell is awesome indeed !

Well, I think I was just overworking my brain to realize that I simply might as well use a flag in GetOptions, that will be neater and more efficient since I know a priori that I wanna deal with a specific file type format so I will just need to glob it internally on the program itself rather than from the shell, that will also give me the flexibility of adding another option or flag to process a file by passing its name as an argument to that option. I used File::Wildcard then to capture all these files and then process them as elements in an array.

use strict; use warnings; use Getopt::Long; use File::Wildcard; use Data::Dumper; my $foo = File::Wildcard->new(path=>"./*.tab.txt"); my @arrayFiles; GetOptions( "extract_all"=>\&goIt ); sub goIt{ while (my $file = $foo->next){ push @arrayFiles, $file; } #do something with @arrayFile #through a subroutine } print Dumper(\@arrayFiles);


David R. Gergen said "We know that second terms have historically been marred by hubris and by scandal." and I am a two y.o. monk today :D, June,12th, 2011...

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.
