    To tame the cmd you could use the brilliant idea which I read by BrowserUK (cannot find the link just now) - the following one-liner works on my windows pc:
    perl -pi.bak -e "BEGIN{@ARGV=map{glob}@ARGV;}s/5/6/g;" *

    A wild guess: On Windows, you used to have to use *.* to match all files, while a single * would only match files with no extension. Is that still the case?

    Aaron B.
    My Woefully Neglected Blog, where I occasionally mention Perl.

      Yes. Update:No. "*" matches all files and "*.*" the files with extension as shown below.

      With the files Text1.txt, Text2 and Test in the ordner C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP:

      C:\Perl\bin>perl -le "BEGIN{@ARGV=map{glob}@ARGV;}print for @ARGV" C:/ +TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/*.* C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/Text1.txt C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/Text2.txt C:\Perl\bin>perl -le "BEGIN{@ARGV=map{glob}@ARGV;}print for @ARGV" C:/ +TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/* C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/Test C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/Text1.txt C:/TEMP/TEMP/TEMP/Text2.txt
      The problem is - imho - the different behavior of globbing in the unix shell and under windows. With BEGIN{@ARGV=map{glob}@ARGV;} it can be treated.
