in reply to Obtaining The Exact Time

If you want a unique filename, combine the timestamp with the process ID of the fork handling the connection...

Your question asks how to get the exact time, but I would be more worried about a guaranteed unique value.

P.S. Look at POSIX::strftime. I think

my $Now = strftime('%Y%m%d', localtime)
is much prettier to use than
($sec, $min, ...) = (localtime())[0..5]; $Now = sprintf('%4d%2d%2d', $sec, $min...);

    I agree that he should be more concerned with a unique value.

    However, he didn't say that he was forking and, even if he is, he may well be handling some setup prior to the fork.
