I'll steer you in the right direction. Don't use POSIX!

According to 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:

use Time::Piece; print localtime->strftime('%Y%m%d.%H%M%S'); print localtime->strftime('%Y%m%d%H%M%S');
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 effective and uneffective posting)
