in reply to Getting a List of Files Via Glob

If you don't mind a chdir, then add it first:

chdir $area or die "chdir $area: $!"; @file_list = glob("@files");

    I considered this, but I'd have to return the original working directory at the sub, since other subs assume that the working dir hasn't changed.

    I suppose I could save the original working dir with
    $prevdir = `pwd`;
    But executing the shell command doesn't seem like it would be much more efficient than mapping the directory name on to each glob and then chopping it off...

      Use Cwd. It's a standard module.
      use Cwd; my $dir = cwd(); chdir $otherdir; # do something chdir $dir;
