With the following routine sometimes it pushes files
even if they are older than 10 minutes..

if ((-A "$file_dir/$file" < 600 / 86400) && ($file !~ /^data/) && ($file ne "lock") && ($file ne "vis") && ($file ne "vis1") && ($file ne "vis2") && ($file ne "vis3") && ($file ne "vis4")) {
push (@cleanfilelist,$file);



Is there another command as (-A "$file_dir/$file" < 600 / 86400) to
select only files not older than 10 minutes?

You don't say what OS you're using, but try using -M rather than -A
There's often a difference on unix boxes. To see this, execute the
following code:

opendir(A, ".");
@files = readdir(A);
closedir(A);
foreach (@files) {
        next if m/^\./;
        $A = -A $_;
        $M = -M _;
        next if $A == $M;
        print "$A\t$M\t$_\n";
}
