Exclamation HELP: PERL script to retrieve file listing


Hello,

I am trying to write a portion of a perl script where I want to output the file listing of a directory, but only outputting files and not showing directories. Is this possible to do in PERL? If it helps, I am also using Perl's NET::FTP class.

Thanks in advance,

Xboxter.

If you want just to see regular files, try :

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl

my $dir = '/etc';

opendir MYDIR, $dir or
    die "Can't open $dir: $!";

while( my $file = readdir(MYDIR) ) {
    next if not -f "$dir/$file";
    print "filename: $file\n";
    print "full path: $dir/$file\n\n";
}

closedir MYDIR;
I use the -f test to check if the file is a regular file
