#!/usr/bin/perl use v5.10; use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; use DateTime::Format::Strptime; use Time::Piece; $Data::Dumper::Sortkeys = 1; my $date = '05/10/1969'; my $ymd = '%Y-%m-%d'; my $mdy = '%m/%d/%Y'; my $t = Time::Piece->strptime($date,$mdy); say $t->ymd; # Prints as normal say $t->strftime($ymd); # Segmentation fault
Hi All, I'm getting a segmentation fault from the code above trying to format a date. After digging around a bit I see that it only faults on dates prior to 1970 (perhaps because POSIX doesn't support pre-1970 dates?). My goal is to write a subroutine that can do the following and work for pre-1970 dates:
sub formatTime { my ($date, $in_format, $out_format) = @_; $t = Time::Piece->strptime($date,$in_format); return $t->strftime($out_format); }
My question is, how do you folks deal with this? If it matters, I'm on Windows 8 with Strawberry Perl v5.26.0.1 64bit.

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.
