    Ah, thanks. That makes things perfectly clear.

    $PM = "Perl Monk's";
    $MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop Pontiff Deacon Curate Priest Vicar";
    $nysus = $PM . ' ' . $MCF;
    Click here if you love Perl Monks

      BTW, perldoc is wrong, it's not "script start time", it's $^T as shown by the following:

      #!/usr/bin/perl -l # https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=1230174 use strict; use warnings; use Path::Tiny; my $file = 'tmp.1230174'; sleep 2; path($file)->spew("$file\n"); sleep 2; print -M $file; $^T = time; print -M $file;

      Outputs:

      -2.31481481481481e-05 2.31481481481481e-05

      So you can play games with "file age" if you want to.
