in reply to Re^4: formatting datetime with strftime
in thread formatting datetime with strftime

The order of your arguments is wrong, it should be
strftime(fmt, sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year)
where mon begins at zero and year is since 1900.

my $datetimestring = "5/4/13 16:09"; my ($month,$day,$year,$hour,$min) = split /\D/,$datetimestring; my $str = strftime("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S", 0,$min,$hour,$day,$month-1,$y +ear+100);
