               -M  Script start time minus file modification time, in days.

So, it can be negative if you modified the file within(=after execution) the script, as per:

sleep 1; `touch xbxbx`; my $x = -M "xbxbx"; print "x=$x\n";

Furthermore, the output of -M is fractional Earth days and 1 Earth second is that much of a 24hr Earth day: print sprintf "1 Earth second is %e of an Earth day\n", 1/(24*60*60); ... => 1.157407e-05, which btw is roughly PI/20 millions^-1.

Gosh Larry! My Perl code on Mars is buggy!

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.
