This is bad $year+1900; :) use File::stat through Path::Tiny, use Time::Piece , the convenience is very convenient :) and the error checking exeptions are free
sub cftsain { use Time::Piece qw/ localtime /; use Path::Tiny qw/ path /; my( $source, $destination, $testxt ) = @_; my $sourceStat = path( $source )->stat; my $destStat = eval { path( $destination )->stat }; if( not $destStat ) { path( $source )->copy( $destination ); } else { my $sourceMtime = $sourceStat->mtime; my $destMtime = $destStat->mtime; if( $sourceMtime > $destMtime ) { path( $source )->copy( $destination ); } } if( index( lc( $source ), 'ky2.gif' ) > -1 ) { out_exclusive( $testxt, localtime( $sourceStat->mtime ), localtime( $destStat->mtime ), ); } } ## end sub cftsain

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
