Re: [talk2mishal] Directory Structure in perl

I can help you with a script that would extract the files and folders recursively from a directory.
You can use this and achieve your result

#!/usr/bin/perl -l
use File::Find;

$start_dir = shift || '.';

find( sub{
-f $_ and push @files, $File::Find::name;
-d $_ and push @dirs, $File::Find::name;
}, $start_dir );
print "@files";
print "@dirs";

If some one can do it, we can do it better
