I wonder how "/^" could match anything in the command you've given. Anyway, df /foo/bar lists the data only for the filesystem that contains the file /foo/bar (which can be the root file system, or a fs mounted on /foo or on /foo/bar).

The pure perl solution is to use ustat or statfs:

sub __NR_statfs () { 99 }; $file = "/"; $s = pack "x256"; -1 == syscal +l(__NR_statfs, "".$file, $s) and die "error statfs: $!"; (undef, $bsi +ze, undef, $bfree, $bavail) = unpack "l!5", $s; print $bavail*$bsize/ +1024, " kilobytes available\n";

Update: statfs is linux-specific (Update: except not really, but the structure might be different, I don't know). Ustat might be usable on other systems too.

Update 2006 sep: note that system call numbers are different on every architecture (OS and CPU type). You have to look up the syscall number of your architecture.

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.
