in thread How can I format the output of localtime?

Well, at its simplest, you can leave off the arg to localtime (and all the parens):
print scalar localtime, "\n";
Update: Well, several have found this post downvotable, but nobody has explained why. It's not incorrect. It offers an improvement over the post to which it is a reply (and which, inexplicably, has been significantly upvoted by comparison).

You're not going to change its placement by downvoting it; it's attached to its parent, and it's the only response.

In the helpful spirit of PerlMonks, could someone offer some reason that this post would be a negative vote magnet?

    Who knows. FWIW, I like your solution better than the parent.

    Is there some unspoken rule about golfing in the Q&A section?

    Cheers,
    Matt
