Get day of week from current dateby gavrilo (Initiate)
|on Jul 08, 2013 at 11:24 UTC||Need Help??|
gavrilo has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to write a Perl script to tell which Tapes from a backup set need to be changed, and for which tapes they should be changed. For this to work I need to be able to identify the day of the week from the current date.
I found the follwoing bit of code:
This works fine but how do I make my $time = str2time(localtime)?
I can get localtime into a string but str2time appears to need the actual text date. Can someone can put me right?
