That sounds good. I don't use stat because stat returns only epochal time, and I would have to import an extra module to re-parse that into human-comprehensible calendrical time.

    Not true. localtime($epoch_time) will return an array with all the time components. And scalar(localtime($epoch_time)) will even give you a nicely formatted string.


      oh ok. The Date::Time or was it Time::Date or whatever has a similar function that takes a lot more complicated arguments. still, `date` works just fine for me. security is not really an issue in my environment.
