perl with short filenames


does anybody know if it is possible to force perl to use short filename (8.3/ ~-notation) instead of the long ones?

My problem: I have a script (created by find2perl and modified) which searches old files to delete them. It searches through data on a NAS filer using the UNC path, but it terminates as soon as it comes to a folder (long names) that is longer than 256 chars.

if this makes any sense to you, you have a BIG problem
