    Please show us the code you've tried that doesn't work. Also explain exactly what you want to have happen, and what problems your current broken code is having.

    What have you tried? What didn't work? What about opendir / readdir / closedir has confused you? Are you looking to expand wildcards and don't get glob? Have you tried installing something like Path::Tiny or File::Find::Rule from CPAN?

    As asked no one is going to be able to give you more than vague pointers.

    Here's a guess...

    system "cut -opts $_/file >$_/newfile" for qw( d1 d2 d3 d4 d5 );

    Of course, change "-opts" to your actual "cut" flags and "file" and "newfile" to your desired file names.

    If this is not what you are looking for, a better description of your problem is needed...

    Possibly the laziest of all lazy questions.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    The people who are saying these things to you are not being rude nor unkind. If you asked this one-sentence question of a co-worker, who was therefore probably familiar with you and with what you're doing, he or she could "look over your shoulder" and probably help you. But when you ask a question on an Internet forum like this one, your question must be self-contained and "answerable." Please do carefully read the "effectively" link and try again.
