Yes, your code processes file names, not file contents.

I believe the official answer to this question would be "The London Perl
Mongers list considers on-topic messages that talk about Ponies, Buffy,
Beer, and Pie. Everything else should be tagged as 'off-toppic'".
As I'm really bad at remembering things and also a non-native speaker,
YMMV, wording- and semantic-wise.
