I want to download file from sftp. If i hardcoded the filename it works. But, the file starts is random.

Can some one help me why it fails ?

Code below :
Works : $data_file = "Decemeber2009_3rdParty.csv"; Fails : $data_file = "*_3rdParty.csv"; SFTP : my %args = (user => encode("iso-8859-1", $ftp_user) , password => +encode("iso-8859-1", $ftp_passwd)); $args{ssh_args} = [ port => encode("iso-8859-1", $ftp_port) ] + if $ftp_port; $sftp = Net::SFTP->new($ftp_url, %args); return 0 if (!$sftp); $sftp->get(encode("iso-8859-1", $ftp_file), $local_file); my ($statuscode, $statustext) = $sftp->status; $log->error("\nFile not found") if($statustext ne "No error"); FTP: $ftp = ($ftp_port) ? Net::FTP->new($ftp_url, Port => $ftp_port) : +Net::FTP->new($ftp_url); return 0 if (!$ftp); $ftp->login($ftp_user, $ftp_passwd) or return 0; $ftp->get($ftp_file, $local_file) or $log->error("\nFile not f +ound"); $ftp->quit;
