stacy has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'd like to be able to check if a given date is between 2 other specific dates (these 2 will always be within the 60 days mof the date when the script is run). I have seen postings that indicate using the Date::Calc module - actually the Date-Calc module which I read somewhere is the compiled binary version of the module so I installed it via PPM. However in browsing this module, I found that it contains C components so requires the C compiler which I do not have on my Windows 2000 system.
Or perhaps there is some easier way to determine if the given date falls between the 2 other specified dates?
Btw, I am new to Perl. I also went to http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/perl/win32-bin/ but got "The page cannot be found" for each link I tried there. I'd appreciate any help that can be offered.Thanks. Stacy
