Unless you supply at least one argument to the script, $ARGV[0] won't
exist.  There's a difference in perl between 'not defined' and an
empty string (or zero for numerical values). Try:

    if ( @ARGV < 1 ) {
        usage();
        exit 1;
    }

or

    unless ( defined $ARGV[0] ) {
        usage();
        exit 1;
    }
