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>


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
