in thread printing element of anonymous array

Just for TIMTOWTDI, Time::gmtime has been in core ~10 years longer:

use Time::gmtime; print gmtime->wday;

But there is a difference: Time::Piece's wday index is 1-based (1=Sunday) while gmtime and Time::gmtime's wday is 0-based (0=Sunday).

    True, but there's a reason Time::Piece was placed in core, and it ain't because Time::gmtime had feature bloat.

    Besides the aforementioned wday(), which provides a one-indexed numerical value for the day of the week, Time::Piece also provides _wday() and day_of_week() for getting the zero-indexed value, as well as fullday() to get the full name of the day, and day() and wdayname() for an abbreviated version of the name.

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
