dtbach has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm very new to Perl and have been reading lots of documents, PDF's, how-to and tutorials on line and can't find exactly what I'm looking for.
I'm hoping for a portable solution, (so don't want to install CPAN modules to do this) as this isn't an option on the machines this script is being use on.
So based off of current date have one scalar variable to determine yesterdays date in the form of %Y%m%d and and a second scalar variable with same date format but a week ago from yesterdays date.
Thank you for taking the time to review this desperate plea for assistance.
