in reply to Perl DBI & RMAN commands

Your best bet is to use RMAN directly, as suggested by the responses to your previous post.

If you really want to try via DBI, there's a dbms_backup_restore package that you can call. But, it's undocumented, which means unsupported and the API is likely to change between versions. I'd come up with a very good reason to not use RMAN before I'd try the DBI route.

[james28909]: yep, i am scraping a websites date/time stamp from an article. none of that is relevant though because the strings i get are as expected. the returned data from the website is the list of @weekdays
[james28909]: i need to convert those @weekdays to an numerical date based off of scalar localtime
[james28909]: i have thught about this and though about it lol
[james28909]: also remember, that if 'Today' is may 1, then Yesterday is not may 31 lol
[james28909]: theoretically speaking ofcourse
[james28909]: so if you subtracting as you loop, be aware that you will eventually be subtracting into a past month, or year <.<
