Sure, it takes more code. That's what happens when you try to use a general purpose language instead of a task-specific mini-language.

    Greetings all,
    In the end, I ended up simply using a "system" call within Perl:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use POSIX qw(strftime); $|++; my $gmtstring = strftime "%F %H:%I:%S", localtime; my $filename = "symlinked-iso-file-with-limited-lifetime"; my $arg1 = ('-XP . -type l -cmin'); my $arg2 = ('+15'); my $arg3 = ('xargs rm'); system("/usr/bin/find $arg1 $arg2 | $arg3");
    It's just going to have to do, until I become more proficient in Perl.

    Thank you all again, for all your time, consideration, and patience. :)

    --chris

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;

[james28909]: omg
[james28909]: im just finding out that july and august have 31 days?
[atcroft]: stevieb: Apparently it was contagious....
[atcroft]: james28909: Make both hands into fists, place them together (with thumbs concealed), and every knuckle is a month (starting with Jan.) has 31 days, every dip (between knuckles) does not....
[atcroft]: (And Feb. is the odd case, because it is 28, unless it is a year divisible by 4, or if it is divisible by both 100 and 400 (at which point it is 29).)
[james28909]: i know but scroll through your calendar on your computer.
[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
