( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Could potentially receive more than one socket connection per second. Need to capture the exact date/time the connection is made because a file will be created with the date/combo as part of the filename. Here's what I've come up with so far, feel free to offer any improvements:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Time::HiRes qw(time); use strict; # using time from Time::HiRes to obtain fractions... my $now = time; my ($secs, $fract) = ($now =~ /(\d+)\.(\d+)/); # convert $secs to YYYYMMDDHHMMSS... my ($sec, $min, $hr, $day, $mon, $yr) = (localtime($secs))[0,1,2,3,4,5 +]; my $new = sprintf "%04d%02d%02d%02d%02d%02d", $yr + 1900, $mon + 1, $d +ay, $hr, $min, $sec; # combine the fraction from Time::HiRes::time to $new... print "Exact time is: $new$fract\n";
This works but seems like a hack. Is there a better way to do what I need?
