tos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello friends,

given: two perl-versions on a windows xp(svp1)-system.

  1. perl: (revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 2), Platform: osname=cygwin, osvers=1.5.5(0.9432)
  2. aperl: (revision 5 version 6 subversion 1) configuration: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=4.0

The correct (system-)time is shown by activePerl
# aperl -we 'use Time::localtime;print ctime()' Wed Apr 21 17:11:38 2004
Thought cygwin shows this time, too ...
# date Wed Apr 21 17:11:42 2004
perl 5.8 doesn't but prints (presumably) the gmtime instead.
# perl -we 'use Time::localtime;print ctime()' Wed Apr 21 15:11:45 2004
What's to do for sychronizing ?

Thanks in advance and regards,
