( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A minor quibble with "The sprintf() being the last expression eliminates the need for an explicit return.
I always put an explicit return except for sort subs. Here the code is going to return the return value of sprintf(), presumably "1" which really doesn't mean anything in the context of this code. Ending with return; statement would return undef. I guess this is a style thing, YMMV.

BTW, I always go with a YYYY-MM-DD format. For (a) consistency and (b) this produces a natural ASCI sort order that does "what you expect".

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
