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

given: two perl-versions on a windows xp(svp1)-system.

  1. perl: (revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 2), Platform: osname=cygwin, osvers=1.5.5(0.9432)
  2. aperl: (revision 5 version 6 subversion 1) configuration: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=4.0

The correct (system-)time is shown by activePerl
# aperl -we 'use Time::localtime;print ctime()' Wed Apr 21 17:11:38 2004
Thought cygwin shows this time, too ...
# date Wed Apr 21 17:11:42 2004
perl 5.8 doesn't but prints (presumably) the gmtime instead.
# perl -we 'use Time::localtime;print ctime()' Wed Apr 21 15:11:45 2004
What's to do for sychronizing ?

Thanks in advance and regards,

tos at cologne/rhine/GMT+01:00

Is simplicity best or simply the easiest Martin L. Gore

  • 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).
