Windows/Dos question here.

I have a perl script that takes arguments from the command line. In the Bash
I can just do "myscript.pl *" which returns a list of all files in that
directory to my script. In Dos, this script works, but you have to mention
each file explicitly: "myscript.pl file1 file2 file3". If I do "myscript.pl
*" it will actually look for a file called "*", which it can't find, and

How can I use wildcards in Dos with this? I know it can be done as "dir
*.txt" works as expected.

Thanks in advance,
