Yeah, that's correct, but it is slightly more complicated than it needs to be. Using the lt and gt string comparison operators is a bit simpler:
my $d1 = '2019-06-08'; my $d2 = '2019-06-08'; if ($d1 lt $d2) { print "\n$d1 is smaller.\n"; } elsif ($d2 gt $d1) { print "\n$d1 is larger.\n"; } else { print "\nThe dates are equal!\n"; }
Or:
my $d1 = '2019-06-08'; my $d2 = '2019-06-08'; print $d1 lt $d2 ? "$d1 smaller" : $d1 gt $d2 ? "$d1 larger" : "Dates are equal";
