in reply to Glob error check giving warning

By and large, don't use glob() in scalar context. The next time your program executes that line, it will provide the next *.ntp file from the original directory, even if $dir has changed, and after getting each *.ntp file, it will return undef once before restarting. Try this instead.
if ( ! defined( $file ) ) { $file = ( glob(...) )[0]; if ( ! defined( $file ) ) { die "no NTP file\n"; } }
