I'm trying to get the last day of the month from 2 months ago. For example, Since the current month is March i'd like to get a date range of 1/31/2011 to 2/28/2011. And If current month was February..then i'd want 12/31/2010 to 01/31/2011. The code i'm using is below...I really appreciate your help!
use POSIX 'strftime';
my @t = (localtime(time));
#mktime(sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year, wday = 0, yday = 0, isdst = 0
my $lastday = POSIX::mktime(0,0,0,0,$t,$t,0,0,-1);
my $lastday_prev = POSIX::mktime(0,0,0,0,$t,$t,0,0,-1);
my @ld_prev = localtime($lastday_prev);
my @ld = localtime($lastday);
print "ld is $ld\n";
print "ld_prev is $ld_prev\n";
my $monthly_date_beg = strftime('%m/' . $ld_prev . '/%Y', $t,$t[
+1], $t, $t, $t-2, $t);
my $monthly_date_end = strftime('%m/' . $ld . '/%Y', $t,$t, $
+t, $t, $t-1, $t);
rint "beg = $monthly_date_beg\n";
print "end = $monthly_date_end\n";
