in reply to Re^2: time difference
in thread time difference

Two problems.

  • First I forgot that -C -A & -M give their results in days rather than seconds like every other timestamp.
  • Second, the days will always be +1 (because days of the month start from 1) and it would only work for values less than 31 (number of days in January).

    The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.
