NAME

File::Find::Rule::DirectoryEmpty - find empty directories recursively

SYNOPSIS

        use File::Find::Rule::DirectoryEmpty;
        
        my @emptydirs = File::Find::Rule->directoryempty->in('/home/myself');
   
   # another way..
   
   my $o = new File::Find::Rule;
   $o->directoryempty;
   my @emptydirs = $o->in( $ENV{HOME} );

Matching Rules

directoryempty()

Matches only if it is an empty directory.

DESCRIPTION

This module inherits File::Find::Rule. It lets you find empty directories recursively. Note that a directory with an empty directory inside it is not an empty directory.

NOTES

Instead of reading full count of directory contents, we return false as soon as we match something other then . or .. This helps with speed.

CAVEATS

This may not work on windows platforms. You're welcome to send in a patch for it.
