Just a thought if you want to base it on the date (ie the 25th) you can call localtime and give it the mtime to work with. You get the mtime into a var then call localtime using that var. Then use localtime(time) to determine the current date and comapre them the code below runs on Win 98 SE. I hope that this is what you are looking for<
my $filename = 'Temp.txt';
#get current time and date
#convert modtime to local format
#compare current date to modified date
if (($mod_mday == $mday) && ($mod_mon == $mon) && ($mod_year == $year)
#Do whatever if modified today
print "$filename modified today\n"
#DO things if not modified today
print "$filename not modified today\n";
