You could also use Date::Manip
$date = ParseDate("today"); print "Today's Date is $date.\n";

    If you want to make the date more human-readable, you can use Date::Manip::UnixDate to format it:
    $date = UnixDate( ParseDate("today") => '%b %e, %Y' ); print "Today's Date is $date.\n"; # MMM DD, YYYY (day is space-padded)
