Birth of a Perl Monk

%stats = ( 'Name' => 'Anna Kathryn Yocom', 'Sex ' => 'Female', 'Date' => 'April 3, 2001', 'Time' => '02:23' ); print map("$_ : $stats{$_}\n",keys %stats); # Ideally, she would have been born at 8:16 on April 2nd, # so her YY-MM-DD-HH-MM timestamp would be 01-02-04-08-16, # but her mother seemed to disagree. :-)

Update: Anna's learning fast! As you can see, I got her a copy of the Perl 5 pocket reference, just in case.

    Hum. Monkette? Monklette? Maybe a more classical diminutive like Monkie?

    --
    $you = new YOU;
    honk() if $you->love(perl)

      Surely not Monkee. That would be confusing.

    Congrats! Of course you could just give her the time stamp of 986289780 local or 986264580 for gmtime.
    And just because I was curious: Sun Sep 9 at 01:46:40 gmtime, we're getting that 10th digit of seconds. woo woo!

    I just know I'm getting voted down for this nitpick, but that cool timestamp would have been on February 4th, not April 2nd.

    And I know you wouldn't want to change the format to YY-DD-MM; it's just not good for sorting. But at least you can stop regretting that you were so close...

    But seriously, congratulations.

      You know, it's funny...I had exactly that same realization yesterday. ++ to you!
