I don't know what your other requiremensts are, but here's a DateTime script to do it. Notice that you can plug in your own formatter class. :)

#!/usr/bin/perl use DateTime; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; foreach my $time ( map { time - $_ * 86400 } -3 .. 3 ) { my $dt = DateTime->from_epoch( epoch => $time, formatter => DateTime::Format::Strptime->new( pattern => "%B % +e, %Y" ) ); my $string = do { my $duration = $dt - DateTime->now; my $D = $duration->years + $duration->months; my $d_days = $duration->delta_days; if( $D or $d_days < -1 or $d_days > 1 ) { "$dt" } elsif( $d_days < 0 ) { "Yesterday" } elsif( $d_days > 0 ) { "Tomorrow" } else { "Today" } }; print "$time: ", $dt->ymd, " $string\n"; }

And here's the output:

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