( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am trying to use POSIX::strftime to get the timezone of the system. Below is the script which perform this job.

#!/usr/bin/perl # use strict; use warnings; use POSIX qw(strftime); my $timeZone = strftime "%z", localtime(); print "$timeZone \n"; Output: # perl +0100

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 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 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.
