in thread how to access elements in perl

I agree that the tone of "go figure it out yourself and come back with code" that some responders take on posts like these is not very welcoming. However, I think it's a good idea to ask someone to show some effort, in encouraging terms of "we'll help you figure it out" (I like davido's response). I think it helps the learning process, and also, as opposed to just providing a piece of code, it helps weed out those people who are just asking others to do their work for them, and those who will simply copy and paste a piece of code without trying to understand it. At the very least, it'd be nice to know the OP's level of Perl knowledge.

[stevieb]: use metamod::DateTime. Don't fsck around. Seriously. As someone who's done sensitive date/time stuff, don't roll your own. Use what is available and known stable. Do not guess.
[stevieb]: Date::Time even
[stevieb]: ffs I can't make DateTime link properly, so there.
