in thread Should I worry about "Inappropriate ioctl for device"?

You may read this by brian_d_foy. $ERRNO is not what you want.

One option might be to rewrite you code like this:

sub four_digit_year { my $year = shift; if ( $year !~ /\d{4}/ ) { return; # undef } return $year; }

Then check if the result of your sub call is defined and die with some custom error message if not.

And probably you may find a more robust recipe on PM how to test if some date is valid.

Best regards, Karl
