in reply to Win32 File Creation Weirdness, ActivePerl 5.8.8

The > operator is redirecting the output to file "id".
Converting => operator to a letter/word like "and" prints the output without printing the ID
I'm getting the result without any ID... This will give u a result sans id
perl -e "for (glob '*') { ($id) = /\d+$/ || /^\d+/; print \"$_\n\"; }"
You can also try this
UPDATED CODE(thanks to cdarke):
perl -e "while (<*>){print $_.\"\n\";}"
Same result

    Except that <*.*> expects the filename to include a dot. It won't pickup directory names (which generally do not contain a dot) or filenames like README.
