NAME ^

VMS::FindFile - Perl extension to return all the file names matching a VMS wildcard file specification.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use VMS::FindFile;

  my $ff=VMS::FindFile->new($wildcard_spec);

  while (my $filename = $ff->search()) {
     # ... do whatever with $filename ...
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

VMS::FindFile is a VMS-specific module which returns all file names matching a VMS-style wildcard specification. It acts almost exactly like the f$search() function in DCL, except that instead of using context numbers to do multiple concurrent searches, you create multiple VMS::FindFile objects.

While it is VMS-specific, it's a lot faster than the system- independent File::Find.
