It's a good idea to timestamp the images with Greenwich Mean Time since that's what NOAA uses: I updated my script with your modified timestamp.

#NOAA updates the images on the GOES website every 30 minutes use strict; use LWP::Simple; use POSIX; my $image; my $url; my %images = ( "eastconusir" => "", "eastconusvis" => "", "eastconuswv" => "", "westconusir" => "", "westconusvis" => "", "westconusvwv" => "", ); foreach my $key (keys %images) { print $key."\n"; my $epoch = ( head( $images{$key} ) )[ 2 ] || next; my $timestring = strftime( "%Y%m%d_%H%M%S", gmtime( $epoch ) ); print $timestring."\n"; print $images{$key}."\n"; my $status = getstore($images{$key},$key.$timestring.".jpg"); print $status."\n" ; };

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
