"Debugging 101" suggests that a few well-placed print statements might be in order. Before the loop, open a <pre> block. Then, within, the loop, print a few key values, such as the raw date values and $day_diff. That should help you narrow down the problem.

And are you really sure that it's a date difference problem? The following looks suspect to me:

$domain = unpack ("A4", $temp1[40]); ... if (($domain eq "BBA") && ...
You're extracting a 4 character string, then comparing it to a 3 character string. Is that what you really mean to do?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
