Try using the opendir and readdir functions along with a file test. Something like:

opendir (DIR, ".") or die "Cannot open the current directory: $!"; my @files = grep {$_ ne '.' and $_ ne '..'} readdir DIR; close (DIR) or die "Cannot close the current directory: $!"; foreach my $file (@files) { if (-d $file) { opendir (SUBDIR, "$file") or die "Cannot open the sub director +y: $!; my @subfiles = grep {$_ ne '.' and $_ ne '..'} readdir DIR; closedir(SUBDIR) or die "Cannot close the sub directory: $!"; unless (@subfiles) { unlink("$file"); } } }

I have not actually tried this to be sure it works. Furthermore, it only deletes empty directories in the current directory. You would need to convert it into a recursive subroutine if you wanted to mine further into the directory tree.

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