your print statements are equal.

There still seems to be a problem with the print statement because:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "use feature 'say'; use DateTime; my $d1 = DateTime->new( year => 1999, month => 8, day => 1, time_zone => 'America/Chicago', ); my $d2 = DateTime->new( year => 2019, month => 6, day => 8, time_zone => 'America/Chicago', ); say DateTime->compare( $d1, $d2 ) ? $d1->ymd .' is greater than ' . $d2->ymd : $d2->ymd .' is greater or equal to ' . $d1->ymd; " 1999-08-01 is greater than 2019-06-08
Maybe something like:
c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "use feature 'say'; use DateTime; my $d1 = DateTime->new( year => 1999, month => 8, day => 1, time_zone => 'America/Chicago', ); my $d2 = DateTime->new( year => 2019, month => 6, day => 8, time_zone => 'America/Chicago', ); ;; my $comparison = DateTime->compare($d1, $d2); $comparison = $comparison > 0 ? 'greater than' : $comparison < 0 ? 'less than' : 'equal to'; ;; say sprintf '%s is %s %s', $d1->ymd, $comparison, $d2->ymd; " 1999-08-01 is less than 2019-06-08
