Your a poet and you didn't even know it....

I really just wanted people's opinion on what they liked using "better"...

I decided to use the localtime method/function (*whichever its called) along with the Time::Piece Module.
I found that Module had lots of useful Methods with it. Some that I used include:
    *If $t contains 'localtime', then...
        - $t->sec;
        - $t->min;
        - $t->hour;
        - $t->mon;
        - $t->mday;
        - $t->wday;
        - $t->year;
        - $t->mdy("/");

Those were just some of the Methods I found useful when I was writing my script. I'm sure the other Module/Function has
plenty of similar Methods along with them. But I just found that this one was a bit more useful for myself...


Thanks,
Matt
