in reply to Mocking time with SQLite

Based on the 'LD_PRELOAD' example shown at the 'faketime' page, it certainly appears to be a plausible solution. I can't see how you'd use it from within a Perl script, but launching the script with

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libfaketime.so.1 FAKETIME="-15d" ./my_sqlite_script

should do it. (Thanks for the link, BTW; I'm actually going to download it and try it myself - it would solve a couple of minor testing situations for me. :)

    I thought maybe it could be used via some kind of XS wrapper or something. It's a moot point anyway as my alternative approach works now. This is much better as it will be portable to any platform whereas I suspect the preload library is Unix specific only.
