 Can File::Find selectively search subdirs?

It seems to me that File::Find is the wrong tool here.

I would do something more like this:

          my $dir = $data[7];  # home directory

            grep -e, "$dir/.netscape/prefs.js",

($p{$_})&6];$p{$_}=/ ^$P/ix?$P:close$_}keys%p}p;p;p;p;p;map{$p{$_}=~/^[P.]/&&
close$_}%p;wait until$?;map{/^r/&&<$_>}%p;$_=$d[$q];sleep rand(2)if/\S/;print
