Re: time & localtime() function Q?by mitd (Curate)

time() returns the number of SECS since Epoch. Epoch can vary from OS to OS but localtime(time) if used in a scalar context will return a human readable date.
For your continuing date manipulation needs Date::Calc, Date::Manip and Date::Format will quickly become your friends.
