in reply to get remaining hours

Perhaps the following will be helpful:

use strict; use warnings; use Date::Parse; my $start = '2013/01/08 09:26:07'; my $end = '2013/04/11 20:19:12'; print sprintf "%.2f", ( str2time($end) - str2time($start) ) / 3600;



str2time parses a date/time string, returning a unix time value in seconds. It's used above to calculate the difference (delta) between your start and end dates/times. The output is the difference in hours.

[Tanktalus]: Wow, given the time separation of marioroy's oatmeal cookies and Disciplulus' response, I'm amazed that marioroy responded :)
[Discipulus]: no no seriously, redss posed a good question in the right moment, and you gave as always wonderful answers
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
