Using File::Find to search subdirectories

Using File::Find to search subdirectories

Using File::Find to search subdirectories

I want to search and perform operations on .txt files in the current and subdirecories.  Everyone says that using File::Find as opposed to writing your own recursive function is the way to go.  However, I don't find the perldoc very useful.  Can someone give me a few examples of how to use this module?  (particularly the find function).  Is there anyway to use it similar to glob?  (while defined(($filename = find(.txt file))) or something like that)  Thanks for your help.

RE: Using File::Find to search subdirectories

In O'Reilly's "Perl COokbook", there are several examples using the File::Find module. You can download the examplesin their books on their website (www.oreilly.com). If you find that book, it's in examples 9-3 and 9-4
