Just a thought if you want to base it on the date (ie the 25th) you can call localtime and give it the mtime to work with. You get the mtime into a var then call localtime using that var. Then use localtime(time) to determine the current date and comapre them the code below runs on Win 98 SE. I hope that this is what you are looking for<
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $filename = 'Temp.txt'; #get stats my ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid,$rdev,$size,$atime,$mtime,$ctime, +$blksize,$blocks)= stat($filename); #get current time and date my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst)=localtime(tim +e); #convert modtime to local format my($mod_sec,$mod_min,$mod_hour,$mod_mday,$mod_mon,$mod_year,$mod_wday, +$mod_yday,$mod_isdst)=localtime($mtime); #compare current date to modified date if (($mod_mday == $mday) && ($mod_mon == $mon) && ($mod_year == $year) +) { #Do whatever if modified today print "$filename modified today\n" } else { #DO things if not modified today print "$filename not modified today\n"; }

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.
