in thread Date format question

Try:
printf("%4d.%02d.%02d\n",$year+1900,$month,$day);
That is, if you don't want today's date to be printed as 100.09.11

You might want to use sprintf if you are trying to get it in a string.

    Actually, you'll also want to use $month+1...

    printf("%4d.%02d.%02d\n",$year+1900,$month+1,$day);
