in reply to Using wildcards to open files.

Do any of those .msg files have spaces in their names?

    Yes it does have spaces in the name.
      That's causing your problem. You are only using the chunk before the first space for each file.

      I haven't had a chance to test this in your exact usage situation, but try the following. It replaces spaces in the file names with escaped spaces.

      #!/usr/bin/perl @files = glob("*.msg"); foreach $file(@files) { $file =~ s/ /\\\ /g; $cmd = "perl script.pl < $file"; system($cmd); }
