You are correct.
my @files = glob('*'); # current directory print "",join("\n",@files), "\n";
# Note that these file names do not say whether or not they are directories, a file test is needed. I demo'ed this at Re: Getting a list of directories matching a pattern.

Update: I experimented with Windows 10 command line and found that I could indeed create a directory with a "dot suffix". That surprised me.Having said that, I have never seen such a thing in "real life". By convention, that is just not "the way that this is done". A long time ago, I was forced to use readdir and grep to get file names because of incompatible glob's. For production code, I still use readdir and grep because it will always work. For quick hacks, I am fine with glob().

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
