( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Following advice here I am using File::Glob's bsd_glob() to grab directory listings. But I now discover that on my Linux 7.3 system both glob() and bsd_glob() ignore dot files (like .bashrc .vimrc etc.). Here's a demo:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use File::Glob ':glob'; my @ary = bsd_glob( "/home/dvergin/*" ); #my @ary = glob( "/home/dvergin/*" ); # same result print "[$_]\n" for @ary;
But the files beginning with a dot are not listed. I need them. I'm using the File::Glob module for its handling of spaces in directory names and I am using bsd_glob() following the advice in response to my previous post mentioned above.

How do I get graceful handling of spaces in dir names and glob-ish lists of directory contents that include the dot files?
