The source of these warnings is that both POSIX and Date::Format happen to export the same subroutine names into the main:: namespace by default, such as sub strftime:
$ perl use strict; use warnings; no warnings "all"; use Test::More tests => 2; BEGIN { use_ok('POSIX', 'strftime'); } BEGIN { use_ok('Date::Format', 'strftime'); } __END__ 1..2 ok 1 - use POSIX; Prototype mismatch: sub main::strftime: none vs ($\@;$) at /usr/lib/pe +rl5/5.8.5/Exporter.pm line 65. at (eval 4) line 2 ok 2 - use Date::Format; $
Exporter says
Exports pollute the namespace of the module user. If you must export try to use @EXPORT_OK in preference to @EXPORT and avoid short or common symbol names to reduce the risk of name clashes.
In your case I guess it comes down to selectively exporting only those functions you are going to use, while carefully making sure you don't get any namespace collisions.

I think it is bad practice of Date::Format to export a subroutine name by default that collides with another subroutine name from a package that is included in core perl. A possible patch to Format.pm could be:

$ diff Format.pm.org Format.pm 15c15 < @EXPORT = qw(time2str strftime ctime asctime); --- > @EXPORT_OK = qw(time2str strftime ctime asctime);
--
No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]
