in reply to d-mmm-yyyy to DOY (day of year)

A good starting point could be to use the module Date::Calc. A bit heavy, maybe, but it includes everything and the kitchen sink, including parsing dates, and the function Day_of_Year.
$doy = Day_of_Year($year,$month,$day);

If parsing dates doesn't work out so well without an explicit format, you can fall back on POSIX::strptime.

 [Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open? [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window? [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history LanX damns the cult of CB ;-) LanX WTF WTF WTF [LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
