in thread Need help understanding code snippet with "grep -f"

I figure the grep -f and the map are both not necessary. Shouldn't this work also?
my @files = glob {"archiv/*vp.o$id"};

No. glob does not check the type of the file. -f does:

/tmp>touch foo.txt /tmp>mkdir bar.txt /tmp>ls -lF [...] drwxr-xr-x 2 alex users 40 Dec 23 10:16 bar.txt/ -rw-r--r-- 1 alex users 0 Dec 23 10:16 foo.txt [...] /tmp>perl -E 'say for glob "*.txt"' bar.txt foo.txt /tmp>perl -E 'say for grep -f,glob "*.txt"' foo.txt /tmp>
