You can get the age of a file using -M, so if you want to send file
newer than 10 days for example-

use constant { age_limit=>10 };

for my $file (<*/*.txt>) # text files in directories 1 level down
  if (-M $file < age_limit) {
    print "Sending $file\n";
   #... ftp_send($file)

That doesn't exactly answer your question on filtering on a date range
though. For that you'd probably want to use a date handling module
from cpan.
