I saw the idea for a time hash somewhere long ago. I keep this snippet on our work wiki site so I don't forget. It could be cleaned, but is useful (one variable to hold the time data.)
sub h_localtime() { my %time; my @time = localtime(time); my $iter = 0; my @iter = qw/sec min hour mday mon year wday yday isdst/; foreach (@iter) { $time{$_} = $time[$iter]; $iter++; } $time{mon}++; # make month 1..12 instead of 0..11 $time{year}+=1900; # make year absolute instead of (year-1900) $time{wday}++; # make week day 1..7 instead of 0..6 return %time; }
The programmer can then do this:
my %t = h_localtime;
printf "%d %d %d\n", @t{qw/mday mon year/};
I don't know that it's a significant benefit in the parent example, but I like it.

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.
