    Hi, I have an idea on how to delete the directory in Perl. But here I need to delete directories based on the data in the oracle databse.

    According to the script I posted I was able to connect to the database and pull the records I want to delete but not sure from there on how to delete them.

[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
