#!/bin/perl

$ls = "/bin/ls"; #location of ls program with options, or dir command on DOS
$diretory = "/export/home/me";  #directory to get listing from

$tmp = `$ls $directory`; #note `` to execute command
@FILES = split(/\s+/,$tmp); #split on white space

#or, more portably:
opendir(DIRHANDLE,$directory) or warn "can't opendir $directory because $!";
@FILES = readdir(DIRHANDLE);

#BTW,
@FILES = `$ls $directory`;
#may have been a more direct way to use the unix specific command

Thank You Both For Your Promptness And Answers.
I Liked ozo's Answer a Smig Better Because Of The Simple "@FILES = `$ls $directory`;" But The Early Bird Gets The Worm I Guess.
