in reply to Date function

It looks like you can display the current date and time. You just need to subtract 24 hours from now to get to yesterday.
localtime( time() - (24 * 60 * 60) );
Combine that with strftime() and youre done.

EDIT (after comment below): Make sure your timezone is set correctly too.

    A reasonable approach, though if you live somewhere that observes daylight savings, it will produce incorrect results for one hour, twice each year.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
