A couple of tweaks improve it somewhat:

C:\test>perl -e "$x = scalar localtime (int(time()/43200)*43200 - $ARG +V[0] * 86400); substr($x,11,9,''); print $x" 30 Thu Mar 20 2014

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    eh eh quoting you is like a summoning spell..
    you burned me on time (appropriate analogy) BrowserUk .. i was thinking how to tweak it too.

    And if you are searching files newer than..? my oneliner skips all seconds between midnigth and the current second: this seems to be an headcache for anonymous. So i have tweacked this way:
    perl -MTime::Local -e " print scalar localtime (timelocal(0, 0, 0, @{[ +localtime(time - $ARGV[0] * 86400)]}[3..8]))" 30 #output Thu Mar 20 00:00:00 2014
    very lazy solution.

    There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
    Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
