in reply to DIfference in days hours and second between dates

Please look at the module DateTime or Date::Calc and replace your code with calls to it.

The following is undebugged and untested, so you're welcome to fix any minor issues that show up. :-)

use strict; use warnings; use DateTime; use DateTime::Duration; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; sub timeDiff { # invoke isn't used, what's it for? my $invoke = shift || ''; my $date1 = shift || ''; my $date2 = shift || ''; my $dParser = DateTime::Format::Strptime->new( pattern => '%F %T', locale => 'en', time_zone => 'CET', on_error => 'croak', ); my $dt1 = $dParser->parse_datetime($date1); my $dt2 = $dParser->parse_datetime($date2); my $dur = $dt2 - $dt1; my ($dd, $hh, $mm, $ss) = $dur->in_units('days', 'hours', 'minutes +', 'seconds'); return "$dd J $hh H $mm M $ss Sec"; }
If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
