in reply to Months between dates ?

Hello bgroper,

An alternative way on using the Date::Manip module could be:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Date::Manip; use feature 'say'; my $date1 = ParseDate("today"); my $date2 = ParseDate("2019-08-10"); my $delta = DateCalc($date2, $date1, \my $err, 1); say Delta_Format($delta, "Months: %Mv Days: %dv"); __END__ $ perl Months: -2 Days: 0

You can create your own conditions based on the string when you want to have an alarm etc.

Hope this helps, BR.
