I am trying to use POSIX::strftime to get the timezone of the system. Below is the script which perform this job.
use POSIX qw(strftime);
my $timeZone = strftime "%z", localtime();
print "$timeZone \n";
# perl t3.pl
Now when I merge this logic in another script it an getting below error.
Usage: POSIX::strftime(fmt, sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year, wday = -1
+, yday =
-1, isdst = -1) at test.pl line 2537 (#1)
(F) You called a POSIX function with incorrect arguments.
See POSIX/FUNCTIONS for more information.
Uncaught exception from user code:
Usage: POSIX::strftime(fmt, sec, min, hour, mday, mon, year, w
+day = -1, yday = -1, isdst = -1) at test.pl line xxxx.
I am not able to get why this error is coming. Here one thing to be noted that I am using Time::localtime for some purpose.
So even I tried to use specific function from the package but still I am getting same error.
Any thoughts why this error could be coming.
