Please check if this works for you. Simple solution to work for each month in reverse direction.

use v5.14; #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Time::Piece; my $t = Time::Piece->new(); my $year = $ARGV[0] || 2014; foreach my $month ( 1 .. 12 ) { #Make an object with first day of each month and use it to get las +t day of each month my $tFirstDayObject = $t->strptime( "$year/$month/1", "%Y/%m/%d" ) +; my $monthLastDay = $tFirstDayObject->month_last_day; #Now make an object with this last date and use it to get last wee +kDay number my $tLastDayObject = $t->strptime( "$year/$month/$monthLastDay", " +%Y/%m/%d" ); my $weekDay = $tLastDayObject->wday; #Now calculate how many days to add in this weekDay taking Sunday +as the first day my $daysToMoveBack = 0; $weekDay >= 6 ? ( $daysToMoveBack = $weekDay - 6 ) : ( $daysToMove +Back = $weekDay + 1 ); my $lastFridayDate = $monthLastDay - $daysToMoveBack; #Now make an object with this $lastFridayDate for each month my $tLastFridayObject = $t->strptime( "$year/$month/$lastFridayDat +e", "%Y/%m/%d" ); say $tLastFridayObject->cdate; }
Output:
