in reply to Date format YYYY-MM-DD HH-MM-SS

In the spirit of Tim Toady, when you have all the date/time elements in separate variables printf / sprintf can be your friend:
use strict; use warnings; my $format = "%4u-%02u-%02u %02u-%02u-%02u"; my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime; printf "$format\n", $year+1900, $mon+1, $mday, $hour, $min, $sec; my $event = 'The Eagle has landed (' . sprintf($format, 1969, 7, 20, 2 +0, 17, 40) . " UTC)\n"; print $event; __END__ 2013-10-13 10-49-01 The Eagle has landed (1969-07-20 20-17-40 UTC)
