I scoured the archive for an answer so I hope this is not a
duplicate. I just installed Mhonarc on an NT server with the hopes of
converting some NTList log files to HTML. NTList (the listserver product
for NT Mail) stores a given days messages in a file. For example, today is
LL990411.log. I want to be able to point Mhonarc at a directory and have it
convert all the log files in the directory.
Here is my problem: under Windows 95, I can point mhonarc at the
directory and use a *.log wildcard. It successfully finds and converts all
the files for a given list.
For example, perl mhonarc e:\logfiles\*.log
However, the exact same syntax under NT returns "No such file or directory."
Are you using a different version of perl under NT? The DOS shell on
under Windows does not do filename globbing (ie. "*" does not get
expanded). Hence, some ports of perl under Windows handle filename
globbing before executing a Perl program.
Try getting ActivePerl from activestate. It should handling filename
globbing in program arguments and it works under Win9x and NT.
