in reply to garbage at end of string in strptime

Apologies for the delay of code. My code is like

my $last_executed = $time_file . ".txt"; return 1 unless (-e $last_executed); open(IN, '<' . $last_executed); my $time = <IN>; close(IN); my $valid_time = $time; return 1 if ( $valid_time !~ m/(\d{4})-(\d{2})-(\d{2})(?:T)?(\d{2}):(\ +d{2})/gi ); my ($year, $month, $day, $hour, $min) = $time =~ m#(\d{4})-(\d{2})-(\d +{2})(?:T)?(\d{2}):(\d{2})#gi; my $dt1 = DateTime->new ( year => $year, month => $month, day => $day, +hour => $hour, minute => $min); my $time2 = localtime->datetime; my ($year2, $month2, $day2, $hour2, $min2) = $time2 =~ m#(\d{4})-(\d{2 +})-(\d{2})(?:T)?(\d{2}):(\d{2})#gi; my $dt2 = DateTime->new ( year => $year2, month => $month2, day => $da +y2,hour => $hour2, minute => $min2);

    What happened to Time::Piece:-). In general, it would be better to use a DateTime::Format::Strptime class like this:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; use DateTime::Format::Strptime qw(); my $format = DateTime::Format::Strptime->new( pattern => '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S', time_zone => 'local', on_error => 'croak', ); my $ts1 = '2012-02-15 00:00:00'; my $dt1 = $format->parse_datetime($ts1); $dt1->add( hours => 3, minutes => 56, seconds => 53, ); print $format->format_datetime($dt1); my $ts2 = '2012-02-15 00:00:00';; my $dt2 = $format->parse_datetime($ts2); $dt2->add( years => 1, hours => 4, minutes => 27, seconds => 25, ); print $format->format_datetime($dt2);
