in reply to using wildcard character * in perlscript command line

I ran into this same problem. In an older version (<5.0) of perl, "perl script.pl *.ext" worked the way I expected it to, by expanding the * wildcard, but after upgrading to perl 5.8, this no longer worked, so I had to do something like the examples already given (doing the globbing/*-expansion with a couple lines of code).
