This is explained in  perldoc Date::Calc
* "($Dd,$Dh,$Dm,$Ds) = Delta_DHMS($year1,$month1,$day1, $hour1,$min1,$sec1, $year2,$month2,$day2, $hour2,$min2,$sec2);" This function returns the difference in days, hours, minutes and seconds between the two given dates with times. All four return values will be positive if the two dates are in chronological order, i.e., if date #1 comes chronologically BEFORE date #2, and negative (in all four return values!) if the order of t +he two dates is reversed. This is so that the two functions ""Delta_DHMS()"" and ""Add_Delta_DHMS()"" (description see further below) are complementary, i.e., mutually inverse: Add_Delta_DHMS(@date1,@time1, Delta_DHMS(@date1,@time1, @date2,@ti +me2)) yields ""(@date2,@time2)"" again, whereas Add_Delta_DHMS(@date2,@time2, map(-$_, Delta_DHMS(@date1,@time1, @date2,@time2))) yields ""(@date1,@time1)"", and Delta_DHMS(@date1,@time1, Add_Delta_DHMS(@date1,@time1, @delta)) yields ""@delta"" again. The result is zero (in all four return values) if the two dates and times are identical.

Title:
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.
