in reply to perl glob

Normally this globbing would be handled by the shell, so your two commands would be

perl *.ws
perl test_*.ws
Leaving your script to work its way through @ARGV and process files.

To make it even simpler, you could just replace with, unless the wrapper script is doing something that you haven't shown here.

    Sorry for my poor english...

    The is an other long programm which I have wrote for converting scripts in one programming language to the scripts in an other. But with I can only convert one file in one go. E.g.:


    It will create a new script names So I wrote this simple wrapper, to allow me converting several ws files in one go. E.g.:

    perl .ws

    For instance, it converts, and in one go, which I can't achieve with:

    perl .ws.


    perl *.ws

    also didn't work, probably because I also allowed users to define the output filename by themselves, e.g.:


    And here is the relevant codes in

    my $file_name = ""; if (scalar(@ARGV) == 2){ $file_name .= $ARGV[1]; } else { $ARGV[0] =~ s/(.+)\.\S+/$1/; $file_name .= $ARGV[0]; $file_name .= ".is"; }

    I checked here whether the user defined a name for the "is" file, if not the "is" file will take the same name with the "ws" file.

    Many thanks!
