in thread Need help comparing 4 dates

Hi All, this does work beautifully, except for one thing...i keep getting the following warning message:

Use of uninitialized value in length at /u/capsftp/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Date/ line 247, <DATA> line 2

I was curious if you were getting it also? and if so, any idea what is causing it? With Data::Dumper i can see the values all seem to be defined when passed to the Date_Cmp function so not sure why it's happening

    Have you by any chance got a blank line after the headers and before the dates?

      I don't have a blank line after the header and before the dates

        The reason for asking was this bit of the error message you posted:  <DATA> line 2.

        Did you get more than one copy of the error message (on different lines)?

        Another possibility, though I can't see how it would arise, is that you have and old version of Date::Manip?

        C:\test>Perl -MDate::Manip -Esay$Date::Manip::VERSION 5.56
