testing mac file attributes

wrinkles has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

On my mac (10.7) the file conditionals -f and -d and -e give false when the "@" attribute is present. I believe the "@" is used to mark files downloaded from the internet. How do I test these SOBs? TIA
Update: I tried Test::Dir with dir_exists_ok(), which returned "not ok" for the directories with the "@" attribute. I'm still open for suggestions...
#!/usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use 5.010; my @dirs; my $dh; opendir ($dh, '/home/setup_scripts/mt') or die "Cannot open dir - $!"; @dirs = grep {-d $_} readdir $dh ; print "@dirs \n"; close $dh; opendir ($dh, '/home/setup_scripts/mt') or die "Cannot open dir - $!"; @dirs = readdir $dh ; print "@dirs \n"; close $dh;
. .. . .. .DS_Store MTOS-4.37-en
If I change "-d" to "-f" I see this:
.DS_Store . .. .DS_Store MTOS-4.37-en
Using -e:
. .. .DS_Store . .. .DS_Store MTOS-4.37-en
