in reply to Recursive search and delete

The error is as NetWallah says, that you are checking to see if the filename equals "abc*.xml*" - not if the filename matches that pattern.

Personally I'd use Path::Class::Rule...

# untested! use strict; use warnings; use Path::Class::Rule; my $rule = Path::Class::Rule->new->file->name("abc*.xml*"); $_->remove for $rule->all("/tst");
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
