As was said before, readdir (where'd the '@' come from?) is very system dependant. You might also note that MS Windows is not case sensitive, while Unix is. So if you wanted to make sure that the list came out the same on every operating system, you should probably do a case insensitive sort. Then again if you're sticking to Unix, a strait sort will be faster.
@files = sort { lc($a) cmp lc($b) } @files;
Update - oops, nevermind. I don't know what I'm talking about... not enough sleep.
