in thread garbage at end of string in strptime

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);
