[sword-devel] Using Perl script usfm2osos.pl in Windows?

Can anyone help?

CrossWire utilities written as Perl scripts such as usfm2osis.pl seem to be
designed for Unix users only!

This utility does not work when given with a wildcard to specify the USFM

It does work, however, for each individual USFM file when each
case-sensitive filename is specified exactly.

I suspect that all such Perl scripts do not contain any code for 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glob_%28programming%29 globbing  Windows
filename wildcard patterns.

I'm not a Perl programmer. What is needed is for someone who is both a Perl
programmer and familiar with using Perl in the Windows environment to
improve all such scripts such that they are no longer a stumbling block for
users who prefer Windows.

btw. I have ActivePerl installed in my PC.
