From what I have read, find2perl takes one's "(Unix) find" commands inputs and translates it into a perl find script.
Theoretically, at least as described, one is able to modify/customize the resultant script.
OK, my dilemma here. I'm on a Windows platform using a DOS prompt window. I enter the appropriate command, i.e.,
find2perl . -name *logs -print
find2perl produces what appears to be a potentially usable script, but doesn't store the results, but rather displayed it in
the DOS prompt ... so ... I next issue the following command
find2perl . -name *logs -print > logsfind.pl
Again find2perl produces a script output that is displayed, and the file name logsfind.pl is created, but has nothing written to
it. It has 0 bytes. Nada! Zilch!
I can't cut and paste the produced script from the DOS prompt (Is there a way? Win 98SE OS) so I can modify it for potential
I'm missing something somewhere. I guess first I'm asking 1. Do I understand the basic functionality of find2perl correctly, i.e.,
that it produces a similar Unix find script in a usable Perl format? 2. Does the syntax to my issued commands look correct for what
I am attempting to do?
Any and all comments and suggestions welcomed. Thanks in advance.
