in reply to Get time without seconds

Whats wrong with replacing %r with the appropriate placeholders for hour, minute and AM/PM but excluding seconds?

from Date::Format

... %H hour, 24 hour clock, leading 0's) %I hour, 12 hour clock, leading 0's) %j day of the year %k hour %l hour, 12 hour clock %L month number, starting with 1 %m month number, starting with 01 %M minute, leading 0's %n NEWLINE %o ornate day of month -- "1st", "2nd", "25th", etc. %p AM or PM ...

    What about this:
