in thread Perl and XUL app

What I meant was: why couldn't the server be run on the client machine?

For what it's worth, I pretty much gave up on XUL. It seems promising when you read about it at first, but then when I tried to do anything with it it seemed to majorly suck. (Like you're getting at, local resources that you take for granted having access to in any programming language never seem to be easy to deal with.)

[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
