[sword-devel] Using Perl script usfm2osis.pl in Windows?

I'm not a Perl programmer.  Can anyone help?

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

In Windows, this utility does not work when given with a wildcard to specify
the USFM files.

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.

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.
