Hi. Can someone tell me how to take this kind of code and have it be written to a new csv file called missingfiles.csv and with each line be a new line in the csv file?

Thank you.
for (my $t = $start_time; $t <= $end_time; $t += $step) {
        my $file_name_pattern = strftime("%y-%m-%d_%H-*-*_sina.csv", localtime($t));
	my @matched = glob($file_name_pattern);
        print "File matching with $file_name_pattern is missing\n" unless @matched;
}

Since the code is mine, I'll have to stand for answer, I guess. :)

What do you want the CSV fields in each line be?

Hi. Yes it is! By the way, I am not sure what happened with the points but I have applied for them to fix the situation.

For this, there were so many missing files that the command prompt cannot show them all. I just want to have the same output as the command prompt but in a text file.

Try this:
 
open(my $fh, ">", "files.csv")or die $!;
for (my $t = $start_time; $t <= $end_time; $t += $step) {
        my $file_name_pattern = strftime("%y-%m-%d_%H-*-*_sina.csv", localtime($t));
	my @matched = glob($file_name_pattern);
        print $fh "File matching with $file_name_pattern is missing\n" unless @matched;
}
close $fh;

Oh, then it's not really a CSV file, because the output is not CSV-formatted.

The easiest way is to redirect the output into the file:

perl MissingFiles.pl directory start_file end_file > target.csv
