Well said moritz ++

McSvenster Perl has many ways to do things,you can also use readdir() function this way,

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; opendir (DIR, "/home/vinoth/"); my @files = grep /\.xml$/, readdir DIR; print Dumper \@files;

I am not telling this is the best way, but its also one of the way.

    It's getting more and more confusing for me...

    But maybe I found the critical point: When I use the backticks perl writes to the logfile until the program comes to the line with the backticks. But when I use "glob" instead, perl executes the whole program before it performs any file-writing.

    Is this right? And more important: Can you explain it to me? (you see, I am a beginner...)
