in reply to Expanding dates

I had to something similar to examine log files that were in the same format (yyyymmdd). The user was allowed to specify a range including hours, minutes and seconds for the contents of the file. I won't go into any more detail for the same reson about homework that others have mentioned. However, a good way to check dates is to use epoch time. See also Time::Local.

Good luck
