perlglob.bat - a more capable perlglob.exe replacement
@perlfiles = glob "..\\pe?l/*.p?"; print <..\\pe?l/*.p?>;
# more efficient version > perl -MFile::DosGlob=glob -e "print <../pe?l/*.p?>"
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 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 the perlsub manpage for details of overriding builtins.
