in reply to Timeleft subroutine

For data and time calculations, I've found that Date::Calc has been able to meet my needs. In your case, Delta_DHMS or Delta_YMDHMS might the functions from Date::Calc would probably be what you're looking for.

    Thanks everyone:), I downloaded Date::Calc, I have been looking for one like that, I could use philip brenan's version of timeleft very well.

    Date::Calc is almost always overkill, but I also always use it for all date/time work because it always seems to have the functions that I need.
