in reply to Optimal Date conversion? (Too much information)

Using Date::Manip:

use strict; use Date::Manip; my $from = 'Wed Dec 29 08:17:04'; my $to = UnixDate($from, "%y-%m-%d_%H:%M:%S"); print "$to\n";

That may not be the fastest method, since Date::Manip is pure Perl and is a bit slow. But it's pretty clear and allows both the input and output format to change as needed.

[Perl300]: I found from Super Search, Net::SMTPS or Net::SMTP, MIME::Lite, Email as options
[1nickt]: Perl300 Try Email::Stuffer
[1nickt]: Or for a little more control, Email::Sender:: Simple
[Perl300]: any suggestion on which one might be secure and simplest. I am not doing anything complex, just check some conditions from DB tables and send email to myself (same domain) if conditions are met
[1nickt]: read the doc of the suggestions I just gave
[1nickt]: A lot depends on whether you are sending mail from your local box or using a remote server
[hippo]: Secure in what sense?
[Perl300]: I am sending from remote server
[1nickt]: Then see Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP
[Perl300]: secure in sense it should not cause any security concerns, create some loop holes.... I don't know much about it but don't want to cause any problem for security guys here
