I'm fond of Date::Calc, so I played with your example a bit since I had never used it that way myself. I found something that seemed curious to me. Your example has the delta as negative, since @date_one is before @date_two. That makes sense. But Date::Calc seems to cause each and every element returned by Delta_DHMS to be negative. Should just the first element be negative?
[chicks]$ perl x -33:-7:-47:-19 33:7:47:19 [chicks]$ cat x #!/usr/bin/perl -w use Date::Calc qw/Delta_DHMS/; my @date_one = qw/2002 04 25 23 12 40/; my @date_two = qw/2002 03 23 15 25 21/; my ($dd, $dh, $dm, $ds) = Delta_DHMS(@date_one, @date_two); print "$dd:$dh:$dm:$ds\n"; ($dd, $dh, $dm, $ds) = Delta_DHMS(@date_two, @date_one); print "$dd:$dh:$dm:$ds\n";

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.
