Post #1 of 3
I am running perl 5.8.5 on linux and wrote the following script:
Date manipulation - dates prior to year 2000 giving probelms ...
my $start = "11/01/2000";
my $stop = "11/02/2000";
my $diff = str2time($stop) - str2time($start);
printf "diff btw %s and %s is %d secs is = %d days\n", $start, $stop, $diff, $diff/86400;
if i replace the year to any before Y 1963 (e.g. $start="11/01/1962";), the script breaks down.
The script was working before fine. There were some changes the system guys made in my profile and now none of the other users can run it either.
I believe that there is a system change but don't know how to find it.
