swami has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I was trying to calculate the time difference b/w two input timestamp in perl. But i am not getting the value. Should i do any formatting of input paramters.
#!/usr/bin/perl use POSIX; my $ts1 = "$ARGV[0]"; my $ts2 = "$ARGV[1]"; $diff = ($ts1 - $ts2); print int($diff);

    G'day swami,

    Welcome to the monastery.

    You'll need to show us your input as well as the actual and expected output. Guidelines for this are given in: How do I post a question effectively?

    There are lots of date-related modules on CPAN; for instance, Date::Calc might be appropriate for your needs.

    Hello swami, welcome to the Monastery.

    Please, wrap your code sample into <code> ... </code> tags. See Markup in the Monastery.

    What is the expected format of the input? Plese, show example input and expected output.

    Hi,

    "... I was trying to calculate the time difference b/w two input timestamp in perl..."
    Please, I don't see how you are doing that here.
    However, in the first place, you might want to properly placed your script in code tags see How do I post a question effectively?
    Then, in the code you posted, I believe you intented $ARGV[1] NOT $ARGV1

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.
