Newbie question
Message ID:
Hello all,

I am a complete newbie and am trying to do a couple of things but was 
not able to. Any assitance is welcome.

 If I have a dir structure G:\abc\efg\qrs.txt:

 1) How can I list the entire structure under G:\abc along with all the dirs. under G:\abc\ right upto the file qrs.txt ?
    In this structure the dir name abc will not change and neither will the name of the file qrs.txt. But there will be a     different dir name for efg for eg: there will be dirs as under  
G:\abc\hij\qrs.txt .......etc. etc.
How can I have these listed in a file (line by line) using perl?

 2) Then I would want to take the individual dir names under G:\abc and
 put them in a separate txt file.
     For eg: From the above eg., I would like to have the dir's 'efg' and
 'hij' listed in a diff txt file, line by line (i.e just these dir name)

 Is there a way to do so in perl? I could do the first part in shell
 script but wasn't sure how it would work under perl. Thank you in
 advance for your patience.
