How can I compare two dates and find the differenc

(From the Perl FAQ)

How can I compare two dates and find the difference?

If you're storing your dates as epoch seconds then simply subtract one from the other. If you've got a structured date (distinct year, day, month, hour, minute, seconds values) then use one of the Date::Manip and Date::Calc modules from CPAN.
