in thread How to get last day of 2 months ago

Thank you all for the replies. I did figure out what i was doing wrong..I had

$t[3]

..when i should have had

$t[4]-1
use POSIX 'strftime'; my @t = (localtime(time)); my $lastday = POSIX::mktime(0,0,0,0,$t[4],$t[5],0,0,-1); my $lastday_prev = POSIX::mktime(0,0,0,0,$t[4]-1,$t[5],0,0,-1); my @ld_prev = localtime($lastday_prev); my @ld = localtime($lastday); my $monthly_date_beg = strftime('%m/' . $ld_prev[3] . '/%Y', $t[0],$t[ +1], $t[2], $t[3], $t[4]-2, $t[5]); my $monthly_date_end = strftime('%m/' . $ld[3] . '/%Y', $t[0],$t[1], $ +t[2], $t[3], $t[4]-1, $t[5]); print "beg = $monthly_date_beg\n"; print "end = $monthly_date_end\n";
