in reply to Perl globbing syntax with $variables?

I think the problem is in '*.*'. Perhaps this would work better:

$WantedFiles = '//server/path/WantedFiles'; @files = <$WantedFiles/*>;

If you also wanted the dot files from that directory, then:

@files = <$WantedFiles/* $WantedFiles/.*>;

Perl expands variables to current values before globbing them (Learning Perl).
