Make HTTP date usable

by Anonymous Monk
on Sep 17, 2009 at 12:01 UTC ( #795864=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

HTTP returns a date as "Last-Modified: Thu, 17 Sep 2009 11:09:02 GMT". LWP's HTTP::Response->header() could be used to get the value, but I really need a timestamp.
Which module is the best for this?

    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Date::Parse; my $date = q{Thu, 17 Sep 2009 11:09:02 GMT}; my $time = str2time($date); print $time;

    Not it doesn't. ->last_modified returns epoch time (as returned by time).
    >perl -MLWP -E"say LWP::UserAgent->new->get('http://www.perlmonks.org' +)->last_modified" 1253197990

    You can format the result by using localtime or gmtime with POSIX's strftime. Alternatively, every date module out there accepts epoch time as an input.
