You might want to modify the respective test to figure out what ls and Perl disagree on, e.g.

my $try = sub { # line 287 my @c1 = eval qq[\$DEV =~ /^$_[0].*/mg]; my @c2 = eval qq[grep { $_[1] "/dev/\$_" } \@DEV]; ### add this if ($_[1] eq "-c") { my @c = map { /(\S+)$/; $1 } @c1; my %diff; @diff{@c} = (); delete @diff{@c2}; print "!!: $_\n" for keys %diff; exit; } ### my $c1 = scalar @c1; my $c2 = scalar @c2; is($c1, $c2, "ls and $_[1] agreeing on /dev ($c1 $c2)"); };

and then contemplate on who is right with respect to whether the reported entry is a "character special" file.
