in thread Look for ~*/.netscape/ dirs

(getpwent's worthy, but still, where's the full search?)

Basically, what happens is the grep tests each potential dir returned by its 2nd arg (the do block) to see if it's a directory. If it is, the entry ends up in @dirs...

It took me ages to figure this out, so it's worthy of a repeat. :o)

(Yes, it took 4 reads of perldoc -f grep to finally parse correctly.)

Me spell chucker work grate. Need grandma chicken.
