    Curious, is that documented somewhere?

    system mentions usage of the shell only for the case when there is a shell meta character in the command.

    perlport mentions that there might be commands which are invokable but don't exists as files, but doesn't mention that perl makes extra effort to makes them invocable.

      Probably not.

[TCLion]: Good Morning Monks, I am parsing logs and some date time formats are inconsistent. I am trying to make output all same format. What is the best way to convert a month(word) to month(number)?
[Corion]: TCLion: I'm not aware of a better way than manually building the hash, as all strptime incarnations I know have nasty edge cases
[davido]: And remember; time is hard. :) As soon as you think, I've got this, you'll discover that time is harder than that. :)
