Here's one without any module required. (Mainly for fun.) Take the current time. Find the day of the week. Then subtract 12 hours at a time while you're still on that day or you're on a weekend (day = 0 or 6 -- so abs(3-day) == 3). I think you avoid any Daylight Saving problems by going 12 hours at a time. (Going 24 hours at a time could skip the 23-hour day.) Someone correct me if that's wrong.

my $t = time; my $dow = (localtime $t)[6]; my $new_dow; do { $t -= 43200; # half a day, to counter Daylight Saving effects $new_dow = (localtime $t)[6]; } while $dow == $new_dow or 3 == abs(3-$new_dow); my @ymd = (localtime $t)[5,4,3]; $ymd[0]+=1900; $ymd[1]++; my $date = sprintf "%04d-%02d-%02d", @ymd;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
