( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a script that gives me the files and directory listing but I need it to print page by page because some of the outputs are very large. I could do the more command in unix but what would I use for a pc??
use File::Find qw(finddepth); die "GIVE DIRECTORY NAME AS AN ARGUMENT\n" unless @ARGV; *name = *File::Find::name; finddepth \&lis, @ARGV; if ( !-d ) { print "DIRECTORY NOT FOUND!\n"; exit(0); } else { sub lis { if (!-l && -d _) { $i++; print "$name is a DIRECTORY\n"; } else { $j++; print "$name\n"; } } $x=$i+$j; print "\nDIRECTORY COUNT = $i\n"; print "FILE COUNT = $j\n"; print "TOTAL RECORD COUNT = $x\n"; }
I tried putting a for loop for STDIN in this but it didnt work:
foreach($y=0) { print "$name is a DIRECTORY\n"; unless( $y++ % 80 ) { <STDIN>;
Please advise.

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