in thread TinyPerl 2.0 and new SF site.

Well, maybe there was more than one oversight... ;-)

This code

tinyperl -e "print <*>"

generates a system error, while ActiveState Perl executes without a shrug.

Don't misunderstand me. I am really thrilled about TinyPerl. It's just that I am cautious when embracing new software, and before saying that it is stable I usually wait until some bugs are reported.

    Same deal.
    perldoc -f glob glob EXPR glob Returns the value of EXPR with filename expansions such as + the standard Unix shell /bin/csh would do. This is the interna +l function implementing the "<*.c>" operator, but you can us +e it directly. If EXPR is omitted, $_ is used. The "<*.c>" oper +ator is discussed in more detail in "I/O Operators" in perlop. Beginning with v5.6.0, this operator is implemented using +the standard "File::Glob" extension. See File::Glob for detail +s.

    Being cautious is good, and i'm sure you knew about glob.
