RSVP-ing, even at the last minute, will help us choose the most
comfortable meeting room -- email bradoaks at gmail.com.
Tonight's meeting of Raleigh Perl Mongers will be at McClatchy
Interactive and will focus on File::Find, find2perl, and general use
of find with perl. This topic should be of special interest to
SysAdmin and TechSupport types.

Given the lateness of deciding on the topic, it is unlikely we'll have
full slides prepared and may instead opt for more of a round table
format. I've pulled a couple references to whet our appetites.
* Mark Fowler's Advent Calendar has a nice introduction to File::Find::Rule
* File::Find::Rule is a friendlier interface to File::Find
* find2perl is a little translator to convert find command lines to
equivalent Perl code. The resulting code is typically faster than
running find itself.
