NAME ^

perlglob.bat - a more capable perlglob.exe replacement

SYNOPSIS ^

    @perlfiles = glob  "..\\pe?l/*.p?";
    print <..\\pe?l/*.p?>;

    # more efficient version
    > perl -MFile::DosGlob=glob -e "print <../pe?l/*.p?>"

DESCRIPTION ^

This file is a portable replacement for perlglob.exe. It is largely compatible with perlglob.exe (the Microsoft setargv.obj version) in all but one respect--it understands wildcards in directory components.

It prints null-separated filenames to standard output.

For details of the globbing features implemented, see File::DosGlob.

While one may replace perlglob.exe with this, usage by overriding CORE::glob with File::DosGlob::glob should be much more efficient, because it avoids launching a separate process, and is therefore strongly recommended. See perlsub for details of overriding builtins.
