Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks

I'm trying to add a section of my script to schedule emails, like I want to send an email out once a month and I'm unsure how to approach this in perl.

I will have a date in the database, and a cron script which runs nightly to check if there is one due to be run, like if a signup was the 5th - it will run the 5th of the next month.
I would like to avoid using any perl modules if possible :(
