Looks for an exact string match between the $currentFile and "abc*.xml*".
if ( $currentFile eq $searchfile )
It is unlikely to find a file with that name.
You could use regular expressions to match the file name, but I would recommend re-designing your code around the File::Find module and friends (File::Find::Match).
