in reply to Finding hidden and system files with File::Find (win32)

I've never seen readdir nor glob skip readonly, system, nor hidden files in Perl under Win32. My quick testing shows hidden and system files showing up via both of those methods just fine. So I don't see how File::Find could be skipping those unless it contains code to do that, which I don't see.

Perhaps the problem is elsewhere?

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
