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<
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $filename = 'Temp.txt'; #get stats my ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid,$rdev,$size,$atime,$mtime,$ctime, +$blksize,$blocks)= stat($filename); #get current time and date my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst)=localtime(tim +e); #convert modtime to local format my($mod_sec,$mod_min,$mod_hour,$mod_mday,$mod_mon,$mod_year,$mod_wday, +$mod_yday,$mod_isdst)=localtime($mtime); #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" } else { #DO things if not modified today print "$filename not modified today\n"; }
