in reply to Run if weekend

  1. Update, I was wrong, 0 is sunday, source: perldoc
  2. Else if you run it on an unix system you can always use a cronjob it might be easier from an administration point of view
  3. Added the usual disclaimer at end of post

Funny you should ask that, for a script at work I just started using Date::Calc for manipulating weekdays, if you just want that datum and nothing else you can get it using this:
my $wday = (localtime)[6]; if($wday == 0 || $wday == 6){ #do something }
Be aware that its only my kind of fishing here, keep looking for answers and explanations.
