in reply to create array from strftime

Problem #1: strftime doesn't take an epoch time for argument.

Problem #2: strftime returns a single string.

Then there's also the fact that "3 scalars" are not "an array".

Solution:

my ($day, $month, $year) = (localtime)[3,4,5]; $month += 1; $year += 1900;

localtime.

    Or read the output of strftime(3). :)
    Here's another example:
    use POSIX qw(strftime); # POSIX is your friend # see man strftime(3) for format options my $gmtstring = strftime "%F %H:%I:%S %z", localtime; print $gmtstring;

    Hope this helps.


    my $perl_version( 5.12.4 );
    print $perl_version;
      How does one use that to populate $day, $month and $year?
        I used this to populate Month. Couldn't something similar be used for Year & Day?
        use Time::Piece; use strict; my @months = qw( 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 ); my $t = localtime; print localtime->month(@months);
        my $perl_version( 5.12.4 );
        print $perl_version;
