in thread Gettting the last Friday of every month using Time::Piece

Here's my refactored version of your demonstration script:

use strict; use warnings; use Time::Piece; my $year = shift @ARGV || 2014; my $p = '%Y/%m/%d'; # strptime() format my $f = '%a %b %d %Y'; # strftime() format my $t = Time::Piece->new(); for my $month (1 .. 12) { # Compute the last day of the month... my $monthLastDay = $t->strptime("$year/$month/1", $p)->month_last_day(); # Compute the day of the week of the last day of the month (Sunday + = 1)... my $weekDay = $t->strptime("$year/$month/$monthLastDay", $p)->wday(); # Compute the day of the last Friday of the month (Friday = 6)... my $lastFridayDate = $monthLastDay - (($weekDay - 6) % 7); # Compute the last Friday of the month... my $lastFriday = $t->strptime("$year/$month/$lastFridayDate", $p)->strftime($ +f); print "$lastFriday\n"; } exit 0; __END__ Fri Jan 31 2014 Fri Feb 28 2014 Fri Mar 28 2014 Fri Apr 25 2014 Fri May 30 2014 Fri Jun 27 2014 Fri Jul 25 2014 Fri Aug 29 2014 Fri Sep 26 2014 Fri Oct 31 2014 Fri Nov 28 2014 Fri Dec 26 2014
