Just like your shell, * ignores files starting with .. You need to explicitly state it:

my @ary = bsd_glob( "/home/dvergin/{.*,*}" )

    That will include '.' and '..' in the list. I have seen a pattern that will leave those out but it is messy. It is simpler to filter them out.
    my @files = grep { /^\.\.?$/ } bsd_glob( "{.*,*}" );
      System directories '.' and '..' can be ignored just by using file test flag '-f': my @files = grep { -f } bsd_glob( "{.*,*}" );
