in thread counting number of working days

I am new to perl programming so with my little knowledge I tried to use Date::Calendar->delta_workdays() but I am getting errors which I am not able to usnderstand. In first case when I use following code -

#!perl -w
use Date::Calendar;
use Date::Calendar::Profiles qw( $Profiles );
my $calendar = Date::Calendar->new();
#use strict;
use warnings;
my $date1='16-02-2004';
my $date2='23-02-2004';
my $days = $calendar->delta_workdays($date1,$date2,0,0); print "count is $days\n";
I am getting following error -
Date::Calendar::delta_workdays(): not enough input parameters for a date at line 9

When I read the document, it seemsthe format in which I am supplying vars are valid

    I have never used the modules I mentioned - I just know that other people have suggested using them for their Date/Time processing needs. But since you asked, I installed them, and threw the following together, which works:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -l use Date::Calendar::Profiles qw( $Profiles ); use Date::Calendar; my $cal = Date::Calendar->new( $Profiles->{US} ) or die "no calendar\n"; my $days = $cal->delta_workdays( 2004, 2, 11, # first date 2004, 2, 18, # second date 1, # include first date 0); # exclude second date print "days: $days";

    The example prints the number of US workdays from Feb. 11, 2004 to Feb. 18, 2004, which is 4 (Presidents Day!).
