I'll steer you in the right direction. Don't use POSIX!
According to POSIX.pm and Perl 5.004_02 - Compatible?, the only reason you appear to
need POSIX is for the strftime function. Well, one
of my favorite date/time modules, Time::Piece, has
a strftime function as well:
Note that i have not tried this with Perl 5.004_02, but
after looking at the source, i do not see any immediate
'flags' that indicate it won't work.
Sometimes you just have to sit back and ask yourself "is
this really what i need to do, or just what i think
i need to do." Please don't disrespect the Monks. If you
think we are picking on you, we are not. We are just trying
to help. Patience young grasshoper, your problem will be
solved. :) (and read How (Not) To Ask A Question for tips on
