View Full Version : Perl Script...Working on Directory

02-19-2010, 01:01 PM
Hi All,

I need a perl script for the following :

Write a script which takes a directory name and provides a series of statistics about that directory. It should say:

•How many files it contains
•How many of the files are readable and writable
•How many subdirectories it contains
•It should also break down all the files into file types based on the last 3 letters in their name. These should be

listed with the most common extensions first.

If the name provided either doesn’t exist, or isn’t a directory the script should throw a helpful error message

Please help me out

Thanks in advance

Have you read the posting rules for this forum, specifically the part about no homework assignments?

lol! :D

Recently I changed my company, and they have given some exercises to practice,
when I searched for "unix command to find subdirectories"
I found this thread :p
