( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have this find script that only seems to work 1 out of 10 times. Most of the time it corrupts the files and messes up the data. It is supposed to change a word in a directory and ALL of its sub directories on an NT. Can someone advise what I am doing wrong here to make this work correctly??
use File::Find; my @dirs = qw( . ); find ( \&change, @dirs ); sub change { if ( -f && /\.html$/ ) { my $file = $_; open(IN, $file) or die "CANT OPEN FILE!\n"; while(<IN>) { $data .= $_; } close IN; $buffer =~ s/OLDWORD/NEWWORD/gis; open(OPF,">$file") or die "NOT OPENING FILE FOR MOD, $!\n"; print OPF "$data"; close OPF; } }

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.
