in thread Converting date to epoch time

The name of the module is Time::Local, with the T and the L uppercase. Case is significant in module names. Fix that, and the code should work. You can test it with localtime:
#!perl -l use Time::Local; $sec = 1; $min = 2; $hours = 3; $mday = 4; $mon = 5; $year = 6; print $time = timelocal($sec,$min,$hours,$mday,$mon,$year); print scalar localtime $time;
Which prints out:
1149404521 Sun Jun 4 03:02:01 2006
timelocal does some guessing on the year; it figured that 6 meant 2006. Also remember that the month starts at 0, so 5 is June.
