in reply to Date::Calc Module

I like Class::Date instead of Date::Calc for this kind of simple date math (where sql statements can't be used).

use Class::Date qw/ date localdate now /; my $cmpday = date( date( '2001-11-9' ) + '1M' + '20D' ); # add 1 month +, 20 days my $today = date( localdate( now ))->truncate; # truncate makes time +midnight. if ( $cmpday == $today ){ print "Today is $cmpday.\n"; } else { print +( Class::Date->new( $today ) - $cmpday )->day, " days away. +\n"; }

Date::Calc is definitely faster, so if you're needing lots of speedy date calcs, stick with Date::Calc. Docs for Class::Date is here.
