How to read a directory and it's files

I want to implement a Perl Program that takes a directory path, ex (d:\programs) as an INPUT and this directory could have multiple files for this program let’s say 5 files (doc1, doc2, doc3, doc4, and doc5). This program should print the average time to open and read all these five files into OUTPUT. How can I read the files in blocks of 64 KB?

  1. opendir MYDIR, "c:\data";
  2. @contents = readdir MYDIR;
  3. closedir MYDIR;
  5. foreach $listitem ( @contents )
  6. {
  7.   print $listitem;
  8. }
But I am not sure if I am going correct way and kind of lost
