in reply to DateTime formatting problem

I found that changing
my $start_date = DateTime->today->subtract( months => 1); $start_date->strftime("%m%d%y");

to
my $start_date = DateTime->today->subtract( months => 1)->strftime("%m +%d%y");

worked..

[jdporter]: one prog I have has a UI which allows to input a bit mask
[jdporter]: currently it expects the bitmask to be in the form of a hex number, e.g. 0x0101
[jdporter]: but I'd like to let the user specify it as individual bits, i.e. 0b0000000100000001
[jdporter]: there is no bit/binary equivalent of hex, right?
[jdporter]: I guess that the most direct way of doing it is with some magical incantation involving unpack or whatever
[jdporter]: let me google that for me ;-)
[jdporter]: hex points explicitly to oct, which does the job. :-D
