in thread GMT to PST format

my $date_manip_object = new Date::Manip;

Where in the documentation did you find that usage? It doesn't work because the module does not work that way. Read Date::Manip.

    The date and time is in GMT. I should convert to PST time.
    #!/usr/bin/perl use Date::Manip; $date = ParseDate("2 days ago"); print $date
    This works and why created a object doenst work.

      Maybe you should read the documentation. If a class method ->new is not defined, it will not work.

      Most likely, you have a deeper misunderstanding about how objects work in Perl. ->new is a subroutine like any other subroutine, and not a keyword as it is in other languages. So if the module programmer does not provide you with a subroutine ->new, then you cannot call it and Perl tells you so.

      #!/usr/bin/perl use Date::Manip; $date = Date_ConvTZ($date1,'GMT','PST'); print $date
      Is this command converts to PST format?
