in reply to Roll Call - How new is your Perl?

We just recently finished a major upgrade at work and so we moved from Perl 5.8.8 (IIRC) to 5.10.1. That's how long the upgrade took.

Not that I found lack of // or 'state' to be much of a problem. || is often a better choice than // and the few cases when I wanted //, the work-around is hardly onerous. Even though we could now start using 'state', we just use 'our' instead (because it eases certain types of unit tests).

I still have no clue what the point of Modern::Perl is.

[james28909]: i am not sure how to ask google this either
[james28909]: i am getting the current time on my machine with scalar localtime;
[james28909]: i am scraping a website and retrieving a date stamp of an article.
[james28909]: well time/data stamp of the article
[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
