Nope. It does not depend on your shell. At least not if you're using Perl 5.6 or later, because glob is implemented via the standard File::Glob extension and does not rely on shell anymore.

The standard behavior of <*> or glob('*') is to not consider the dot files.

    In the example given, glob is not used with '*'.
