in reply to convert month number to month name

Hi,

Hash is up to the rescue

my %month_name; @month_name{ 0 .. 11 } = qw(Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sept Oct N +ov Dec); my ( $day, $month, $year ) = (localtime)[ 3, 4, 5 ]; $year = $year + 1900; print join " ", $day, $month_name{$month}, $year;
output
30 Aug 2012

    I'm not seeing the point of using a hash here... Since the hash keys are a contiguous, zero-based range of integers, why not just use an array instead of making a hash behave like one?
    my @month_name = qw(Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec); my ( $day, $month, $year ) = (localtime)[ 3, 4, 5 ]; $year = $year + 1900; print join " ", $day, $month_name[$month], $year;
