( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

  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.

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.
