in reply to intro to references

Where you said,

> Line 13: The books are splitted by '|' and put into an anonymous array. A reference to this is stored in the hash %addresses

did you mean, "A reference to this is stored in the anonymous hash referenced at $short in the hash %addresses" ?

(if so, were you trying to confuse us poor novices?;)

[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
