in reply to Perplexing message on command line.

I'm using Windows XP (sp3) and ActivePerl 5.16.3

I suspect that it's *not* ActivePerl that's being run when you run perl -v
Perhaps it's the perl that ships with msys ?

Try running C:\perl\bin\perl -v
(Modify accordingly if ActivePerl is located in some palce other than C:/perl.)

Cheers,
Rob

[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
