Conway discourages the use of the
<.. > construct for globbing, as it is easily confused with the angle bracket file input operator. Instead, he recommends the use of the
glob() function as it makes it much more obvious what you're attempting to do.
@files = <*.pl>; # not ok @files = glob( "*.pl" ); # ok
