It's all teh other stuff that is happening under the covers that you also don't know about.
perl -E"system q[for /d %d in (scale-*) do @rd /q /s %d]"
Does the same job as this:
perl -MFile::Path -MFile::Spec -wE"File::Path::remove_tree(glob(File::
But uses only 7% of the user cpu and 3% of the system cpu.
Does it matter? Depends alot on how big the trees are and how often you run the command I guess, but why use cycles you don't have to.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
