( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear Monks

When I develop software I normally develop it on my Linux workstation and when its finished I copy it to an operational unix system. The following code demonstrates my problem:
#! /usr/local/bin/perl -lw use strict ; use POSIX 'strftime' ; $ENV{TZ} = 'GMT' ; my $t = time() ; print strftime("%s", localtime(int $t)) ;
On my Linux machine this works fine (perl v5.8.8), it prints epoch seconds, however, on the unix machine (perl v5.8.7) it prints: %s

I get the impression that %s is somehow not supported (man strftime).
I've actually no idea how to solve this, so all suggestions would be very welcome!!

Thanks in advance
LuCa

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.
