in reply to 101 reasons to use strict;

Reason 2

You might be writing an e-commerce app, and have a routine that goes something like this:

sub accept_order { ($order_id, $credit_card_nbr, $payment_amount) = @_; save_order_in_database($ord_id, $pymt_amount); charge_credit_card($credit_card_no, $payment_amt); }

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
[james28909]: so if you subtracting as you loop, be aware that you will eventually be subtracting into a past month, or year <.<
[james28909]: dontcha love it!
