calculating days difference between two dates Can't Post

Hi, I am new to Perl. I am looking for a way to calculate difference between two dates excluding weekend and holidays (if there is any). I know that I can use Date::Calc module to calculate days difference:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Date::Calc qw(:all);

my @first = (2008, 1, 14);
my @second = (2008, 1, 19);
my $dd = Delta_Days( @first, @second );

print $dd;

But how do I tell my program to exlcude any weekends and holidays that exist between two dates?

Look at the Date::Calc modules documentation and see if it mentions anything about working with holidays and weekends. Holidays would be harder as they are different around the world but there might be support for that already.
