in reply to Change Image File Timestamp to Match EXIF Data

Neat. Mine looked like this:
#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; $|++; use Image::ExifTool qw(ImageInfo); use Time::Local; for my $file (@ARGV) { my $ii = ImageInfo($file, qw(DateTimeOriginal DateTime)) or warn("Skipping $file\n"), next; my ($created) = grep /\S/, @$ii{qw(DateTimeOriginal DateTime)}; next unless $created; warn "using $created for $file\n"; if ($created =~ s/([-+ ])(\d\d):(\d\d)$//) { my ($sign, $hour, $minute) = ($1, $2, $3); # warn "ignoring offset of $sign $hour:$minute\n"; } my @digits = $created =~ /(\d+)/g or next; if ($digits[0] < 1900) { warn "bad year $digits[0] for $file"; next; } $digits[0] -= 1900; $digits[1] -= 1; my $gmtime = timegm(reverse @digits); if ($gmtime > time or $gmtime < time - 86400*90) { warn "preposterous gmtime for $file: ", scalar gmtime $gmtime; # next; } utime($gmtime, $gmtime, $file) or warn "Cannot utime on $file: $!"; }
