Hello Cody Fendant,

Fellow Monks have provided you with the answer to your question. I would like to add another option here with one of my favorite modules regarding time manipulations Date::Manip.

Small sample of code with different timezone(s) and time subtraction. You can apply the time subtraction based on your time of receiving the email etc...

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Date::Manip; use feature 'say'; my $tz = new Date::Manip::TZ; my $dateLocal = ParseDate('now'); say $dateLocal; # From timeZone To timeZone my $dateTimeZone = Date_ConvTZ($dateLocal,"GMT","CST"); my $unixLocal = UnixDate($dateLocal,'%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S'); say 'Local Timezone: ' . $unixLocal; my $unixTimeZone = UnixDate($dateTimeZone,'%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S'); say 'Different Timezone: ' . $unixTimeZone; my $date1 = ParseDate($dateLocal); my $date2 = ParseDate($dateTimeZone); my $delta = DateCalc($date1, $date2, 1); say 'Difference between Timezones: ' . $delta; # Change Format my $str = UnixDate($dateLocal,"It is now %T on %b %e, %Y."); say $str; my $str_second = UnixDate($dateLocal,"It is now %T on %B %e, %Y."); say $str_second; my $str_decimal = UnixDate($dateLocal,"It is now decimal %T on %B %d, +%Y."); say $str_decimal; # Add more time or subtract or do what ever you want with time my $deltastr = "12 hours ago"; my $date_past = DateCalc($dateLocal,$deltastr); # say $date; my $str_past = UnixDate($date_past,"It was 12 hours ago %T on %B %d, % +Y."); say $str_past; __END__ $ perl 2017110109:11:31 Local Timezone: 2017-11-01-09-11-31 Different Timezone: 2017-11-01-17-11-31 Difference between Timezones: 0:0:0:0:8:0:0 It is now 09:11:31 on Nov 1, 2017. It is now 09:11:31 on November 1, 2017. It is now decimal 09:11:31 on November 01, 2017. It was 12 hours ago 21:11:31 on October 31, 2017.

Hope this helps, BR.

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.
