Ok not sure how to use 'glob', never heard of it^^

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

@files = <*>;
foreach $file (@files) {
  print $file . "\n";

I did this:
while($x = <*>) {
    open(FILE,"$x") || die "Couldn't open $x for reading.\n";
        if(/GX/) {
            print "$x: $_";

But that only prints out lines and not the content of the files with GX. How can I make it print out the content in the files with GX in their name?

---------- Post updated at 08:23 AM ---------- Previous update was at 08:10 AM ----------

I want it to check the home directory for each file that has GX in the file-name and print out the contents within. Not a list of the files or only lines within a file.

photon - generates photo albums SYNOPSIS
Photon generates clean, yet configurable, static HTML photo galleries. All of the work is done from the command line, and the resulting output can easily be configured by changing the template files found in /usr/share/photon/templates. To create a new template (skin), first create a new directory: mkdir -p ${HOME}/.photon/templates/my_theme/ Then copy the contents of /usr/share/photon/templates/photonv1/ to this new directory. Photon only needs three files to build pages: index.html used to display the content of a folder image.html used to display the page for an image movie.html used to display the page for a movie If a file is missing, then photon will throw an error and will not run. HOW TO BUILD A GALLERY
Quick start $ photon -o myoutputdir /photos Use the gimp plugin $ photon --resize-plugin=gimp -v -o myoutputdir /photos Change the size for all images and the thumbnail and keep the original photo $ photon --sizelist=0,1600x1200,800x600 --thumbsize=320x240 -o myoutputdir /photos Create a gallery from your custom template (skin) $ photon -k my_theme -o myoutputdir /photos See photon help $ photon --help OPTIONS
