-d and Find::File::name

Hi,
   I have this snippet of code in which I am trying to print out all the directories. It does not work using the -d, but -f does print all the files. Why doesn't -d work for directories? What am I doing wrong? This should be a pretty basic question for an experienced Perl programmer.

<code>

use strict;
use File::Find;

sub wanted
{  
   if (-d $File::Find::name)
   {    
      print "$File::Find::name\n";
   }
}

find(\&wanted, 'C:/');

</code>

many thanks,

Barry
