Subject: Incorrect global override
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 598b
The CORE::GLOBAL::glob override forwards to File::Glob::bsd_glob if the caller did not load List::Maker. That is not what perl uses by default, which would be File::Glob::csh_glob instead. Hence, loading List::Maker anywhere in a program will cause <* .*> to stop working elsewhere. Why not just export glob in import, instead of overriding it globally? And if you need to override it globally, for some reason, then you should save the previous CORE::GLOBAL::glob in a variable, if it exists, and then delegate to that, or to the built-in glob function if CORE::GLOBAL::glob does not exist.

Fixed and uploaded to CPAN. Many thanks! Damian PS: List::Maker previously followed the documented behaviour of File::Glob, rather than the actual behaviour. So there's arguably a bug in File::Glob as well. ;-)
