    Q: How do I add two dates?

    A (short): Use Date::Calc.

    A (long): Use Date::Calc. Watch out for time zone and DST issues.


Really excellent example! Why, just the other day, I wanted to know the sum of June 13th 1993 and October 23rd 1936. Date::Calc was just the thing for this common, but thorny, problem!

Everybody knows to use Date::Calc for subtracting one date from another to get the number of dates they span or adding or subtracting a number of days to/from a given date, but not everybody knows the great utility that Date::Calc can be in adding two dates!

    Sorta the kind of problem that would only show up in a homework assignment, isn't it? (And believe it or not, I got this one in a first year programming course....)

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
