in reply to create file with current date for name

In your second attempt you should use 'sprintf'.

As it is, you are setting $ymd to the value returned from actually printing (using printf). So printf actually prints the desired value. Then '1' (success) is assigned to $ymd. Then that '1' is printed by the line: print "$ymd";

This also explains the result of '1.summary' in your final trace print.

If you say

  my $ymd = sprintf("%04d%02d%02d",$year+1900,$mon+1,$mday);

you should be fine.
