Re: How to format dates prior to 1970?

in reply to How to format dates prior to 1970?

This Time::Piece strftime, seems problem in windows OS even now with version 1.33

So alternate functions available, which works well.

Example this is not giving any output:

$t->strftime("%b %d %Y, %A [%H:%M:%S]")

So, I am re-writing without strftime, and this is working fine for me even on windows OS.

$t->monname . " " . sprintf("%.2d", $t->mday) . " " . $t->year . ", " . $t->fullday . " [" . $t->hms . "]"

    Hi, you probably still don't want to do that by hand. Try DateTime instead?


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
