If you just need a timestamp string, ala "Wed Mar 22 10:56:43 PST 2000" you can just: print scalar localtime() ;

    It sure would be nice to expand this to include how to find some other simple dates:

    • Yesterday
    • tomorrow
    • same time last week
    • same time next week
    • same day next month
    • same day last month
    • same day last year
    • same day next year.
