How about:

print POSIX::strftime('%Y%m%d', localtime),"\n"; my @parts = localtime(); $parts[3] -= 14; print POSIX::strftime('%Y%m%d', @parts),"\n";

Update: Sure, why not davorg? :) After all, strftime expects a list after the format:

Usage: POSIX::strftime(fmt, sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year, wday = -1 +, yday = -1, isdst = -1)

YA-Update:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use POSIX; use Benchmark qw( cmpthese ); use constant DAY => 60 * 60 * 24; sub use_array { my @parts = localtime(); $parts[3] -= 14; return POSIX::strftime('%Y%m%d', @parts); } sub use_math { return POSIX::strftime( '%Y%m%d', localtime(time - (14 * (60 * 60 * 24))) ); } sub use_math_with_const { return POSIX::strftime('%Y%m%d', localtime(time - (14 * DAY ))); } cmpthese( 90000, { 'use_array' => sub { use_array(); }, 'use_math' => sub { use_math(); }, 'use_math_with_const' => sub { use_math_with_const(); }, }, ); __DATA__ Benchmark: timing 90000 iterations of use_array, use_math, use_math_wi +th_const... use_array: 6 wallclock secs ( 5.67 usr + 0.10 sys = 5.77 CPU) @ 15 +597.92/s (n=90000) use_math: 4 wallclock secs ( 3.63 usr + 0.11 sys = 3.74 CPU) @ 24 +064.17/s (n=90000) use_math_with_const: 3 wallclock secs ( 3.70 usr + 0.05 sys = 3.75 +CPU) @ 24000.00/s (n=90000) Rate use_array use_math_with_const + use_math use_array 15598/s -- -35% + -35% use_math_with_const 24000/s 54% -- + -0% use_math 24064/s 54% 0% + --

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).
