Re: [shanti.dhanus] Desktop Search Utility using Perl
[In reply to]
your question is a bit general.
For looking for files through directories, there are a number of Perl modules that can help: File::Find, File::Util, File::Path, File::Spec, etc., at least one of them should help you out. Just search for File modules on the CPAN and look at their documentation.
For looking into the content of files, you'll really have to tell us more about which types of files you are thinking about: flat text files, CSV files, XML files, HTML files, binary files, etc. Each type of file will most probably need its own solution.
