in thread s// All Files In Directory

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?

    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.
