problem with 'strftime' on unix systemsby jeanluca (Deacon)
|on Oct 23, 2006 at 10:59 UTC ( #579985=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml )||Need Help??|
jeanluca has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
When I develop software I normally develop it on my Linux workstation and when its finished I copy it to an operational unix system. The following code demonstrates my problem:
On my Linux machine this works fine (perl v5.8.8), it prints epoch seconds, however, on the unix machine (perl v5.8.7) it prints: %s
I get the impression that %s is somehow not supported (man strftime).
I've actually no idea how to solve this, so all suggestions would be very welcome!!
Thanks in advance
