in reply to Bug with Backticks under Win32?

As noted you should not be checking $! as it is meaningless in this context. FWIW on Win2K Perl 5.6.2 it dies on the first call with Error 1: No such file or directory. With the 'error' checks commented out it works as expected and prints the dir listings.</code>
