My vote for weirdest feature of Perl is reset
dates produced by -M, -C and -A are useful for things like "delete all *.tmp files more than 5 days old" etc.
And for command line utilities you are making your decision
at the time of invocation, $^T, so that is the important time. These op's must have been
a grand convenience for find2perl.
I agree these are a strange and odd convenience feature but
given the early mission of Perl to be a better shell/awk/sed
I don't find it weird.
