Program suffers from Y2K bug!!! Can't Post


My search engine suffers from the Y2K bug!

When a user searches for something on my site and a list of matching files are found, each file has a date on it. this is displayed like:

June 25, 100

it needs to be displayed like:

June 25, 2000

Below is the code for the date sub:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>

sub formattedDate {
my($date) = @_;
($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime($date);
@months = ('Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sep','Oct','Nov','Dec');
if ($year<100) {$year += 1900;}
$fdate = "$months[$mon] $mday, $year";
return $fdate;

Please tell me what I need to do to fix this Y2K bug.

Learn to read, maybe ? Wink Seriously, you have a line that says :
if ($year < 100) {$year += 1900;}
Replace that with :
$year += 1900;

Wink added to reflect my wonder at the fact that abockover pinpointed the right subroutine where the problem was, but failed to notice that there was only one line there that contains the number 100 and adds 1900 in some cases.
