opendir DIR,$dir || die "Couldn't open '$dir': $!";
For the main point of your code, I think it's excellent
the way that you've used sort() on stat() .
To use the perlop '||' with opendir() the parentheses are not optional. Otherwise, use or which is more reliable in statements such as open() and opendir() , because the precedence of or is so low that it doesn't even require those pesky parentheses.

But, as I said, this is a small tweak that shouldn't take away from what seems to me otherwise to be a good idea.
