Time::Piece is a core module.

#!/perl use strict; use warnings; use Time::Piece; my $datt = Time::Piece->strptime("2012-03-22", "%Y-%m-%d"); my $datf = Time::Piece->strptime("1925-12-22", "%Y-%m-%d"); my $diff = $datt - $datf; my $result = $diff->years; print "$result years\n"; $result = $diff->days; print "$result days\n";

prints:

C:\Perl\bin>perl pm_1033486.pl 86.2496055700018 years 31502 days

See also Time::Seconds for the data values transformation.
