Contract Countdown

Not obfuscation, just quirky.
Sometimes working in a compendium of Dilbert cartoons can be depressing.
At times like this I find it is a worthwhile experience to start wishing your life away, hell what's 100 days.
#!/usr/local/bin/perl use Time::Local; for($_=time;$_<timelocal(0,0,0,(split/\//,$ARGV[0])[0..2])+86400;$_+=8 +6400){ @_=localtime($_);$;++unless$_[6]==6||$_[6]==0}print"$; working days le +ft.\n"
It's run from a cron script on the server with a date argument (DD/MM/YYYY) output redirected to my .plan file :^).
It tells me how many working days I have left in this contract,
I figure by the time my manager's figured out what this code does, Dr Zaius will be squeezing into 54" waist Lederhosen.

I wouldn't recommend using this algolrithm to find the number of working days between two points as it doesn't scale very well.

Gagh I got bored:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use Time::Local;$,+=(localtime($^T+=86400))[60]!~/[60]/while$^T-86400 <timelocal 0,0,0,split'/',$ARGV[0];print''," working days left\n"#:^)
