Array in Perl - Detect several file to be in one array

% touch test{1..5}.log
% ls
test1.log  test2.log  test3.log  test4.log  test5.log
% perl -MData::Dumper -le'
  @a = glob "*.log";
  print Dumper \@a
$VAR1 = [

I have this code
open(MYOUTFILE, "fps.log"); 
open(RESULTFILE, ">result.txt"); 
my $total=0; 
my $lines=0;
while (<MYOUTFILE>) { chomp; my $value = (split /([,:])/)[2]; $total=$value+$total; $lines++; }
print RESULTFILE $total/$lines;

This code is work for one fps.log file only. My program suppose to detect .log file in current directory then it will do the process

while (<MYOUTFILE>) { chomp; my $value = (split /([,:])/)[2]; $total=$value+$total; $lines++; }
print RESULTFILE $total/$lines;

and print the result. Each log file have their own result file. but I fail to make it so

You could use something like this:


use warnings;
use strict;

my @log_files = glob "*.log";
my ($total, $lines);

for my $log_file (@log_files) {

(my $res_file = $log_file) =~ s/\.log$/.res/; 

  open my $log_fh, '<', $log_file
    or warn "open $log_file: $!\n";

  open my $res_fh, '>', $res_file
    or die "open $res_file: $!\n";
  $total = $lines = 0;    
  while (<$log_fh>) {
    $total += (split /[,:]/)[2];

  print $res_fh $total / $lines, "\n";    
  close $log_fh
    or warn "close $log_file: $!\n";
  close $res_fh
    or warn "close $res_file: $!\n";

With recent versions of Perl you could use autodie and avoid all that manual exception handling.
