Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Because even on non-Unix ports, Perl's glob function follows standard Unix globbing semantics. You'll need glob("*") to get all (non-hidden) files. This makes glob() portable.

[1nickt]: But I removed it when I travelled to somewhere more, er ... red. Why? Because I thought how stupid I would feel ...
[karlgoethebier]: 1nickt: I fear not. Perhaps enough for Europe...
[1nickt]: ... if I involved my wife (or myself) in an altercation over a slogan.
[1nickt]: I will not convince anyone who disagrees with me, with a sticker. And I don;t need to advertise my thoughts, really.
[Discipulus]: ++1nickt but what about: "out immigrants! just redskins!"
[1nickt]: I know what I believe and whether I have integrity. My actions will speak more.
[karlgoethebier]: choroba Nothing unclever in my sig. And remember: Beeing too clever is a bad mistake ;-)
[1nickt]: This is not to suggest that Karl should remove his slogan. Just thoughts of mine... Trust me I believe I am very much more radical than most, and if I had a slogan for every gross injustice in my sig, there would be no more bytes!
Discipulus redskins .. well native american..
[1nickt]: So if I was to offer any editorial advice it would be to (1) make it endure time passing (2) make it positive (3) make it about you and your beliefs
