Select Files and Upload Via FTP Can't Post

I apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge. I am just now starting to dabble with Perl. I have been tasked with creating a perl script.

What I need to be able to do is query a directory and select any files that were created yesterday or today. Any files older than yesterday we don't care about. I then need to take all of those files and upload them via FTP.

I am thinking I am going to utilize the Net::FTP module and possibly the File::Find. Would I utilize mtime to correlate file creation times?

Any basic layout or assistance with this project would be great.

You might look at the glob function to list all files into a list (an array), and to the stat funtion to get the file age.

This might not be sufficient, but it should get you going. Please ask if you need more.
