in thread Use 'strftime' to calculate a date/time in the Past.
Hey daxim, thanks for the reply.
I tried your command but it seems I don't have the Perl Module "DateTime.pm" installed on my machine.
And this command which is a part of a script I'm writing will be ran on a number of different servers,
alot of which are AIX and SLES servers which I would rather not have to install this module on every
Is it not possible to do it with the current way I have the command? Because that original command worked
on all the servers I tested it on.
I was thinking that to use my original command, would I have to convert the "amount of time into the past" into
i.e. If I want 2 days, 12 hours, 57 min, and 36 seconds into the past would I just convert each of those into
seconds then subtract them by "time", like in the "gmtime(...)" part of the command?
